Ramaria flavigelatinosa

Conservation Status: Not of concern

Identification Notes:

Ramaria flavigelatinosa is a variably colored species, usually yellowish, but in some forms with more or less salmon-colored flesh that produces an orangeish tint in the branches. Often very brightly colored when young, the fruitbodies often fade considerably as they age and look very different when mature. It is a small to medium-sized species and usually broader than tall. The flesh of the stipe is somewhat gelatinous (but not as much so as in R. gelatinosa), reacts with neither iron sulfate nor Melzer’s reagent, and often has a bean-like odor. The spores are subcylindrical, 8--11 x 3.5--4.5 µm, and have prominent warts. Several varieties have been named, based on slight differences in coloration, odor, flesh consistency, and spore size.
