Habitat: It occurs throughout the conifer forests of the PNW.

Conservation Status: Not of concern

Identification Notes:

Ramaria acrisiccescens is a whitish to cream-colored, medium-sized to large, upright species with straight, elongated, crowded branches. The flesh may have pinkish or brownish tones, especially in age, and reacts with neither iron sulfate nor Melzer’s reagent. If a microscope is available, check the bases of the basidia for clamp connections, as R. acrisiccescens is the only whitish ramaria in the PNW without basal clamps. The spores are subcylindrical, 8--14 x 4--6 µm, and have prominent warts. R. velocimutans is quite similar, but has brownish hyphae on the stipe base, a brownish band of tissue in the stipe, and clamp connections on the basidia.
