Yellow Spindle species

Clavulinopsis sp.


Clavulinopsis sp.? According to The Collins Guide to Mushrooms and fungi by Paul Sterry you need a microscope to distinguish, with certainty, between C. luteoalba, C. helvola and C. laeticolor Clavulinopsis fusiformis is also similar but usually grows in tufts rather than singularly. judging by NBN gateway distributions, C. helvola is the most common so I'll go with that for now!

Beautiful and interesting spotting! Since you're not sure about the species, please edit the scientific name to Clavulinopsis sp. rather than assigning a species name with a question mark. Thank you :)
