Conservation Status: Not of concern
Small spherical to cup- or disc-shaped gelatinous fruitbodies on stumps, logs, and branches of conifers and hardwoods. Generally it appears in fall and continues to grow late into the season. It forms pink to violet-pink fruitbodies, often clustered together, and eventually the cup surface becomes irregular with a distinct dark edge. When A. sarcoides reproduces sexually, eight colorless, two-celled spores are formed in each ascus. However, when young, it may produce only asexual spores.
