Tremellodendropsis tuberosa

Distribution: Fairly common along the Pacific Coast

Habitat: T. tuberosa usually is found on bare soil in forests.

Conservation Status: Not of concern

Identification Notes:

Like Calocera viscosa, Tremellodendropsis tuberosa is a coralloid relative of the jelly fungi. Its small, whitish to pale brownish fruitbodies usually arise from a single, long, whitish, stipe-like base and have a distinctive upright stature. The texture is quite tough. T. tuberosa usually is found on bare soil in forests; it is fairly common along the Pacific Coast, but is not well known, probably because it gets overlooked. The spores are generally ellipsoid to somewhat spindle- or almond-shaped, 12--20 x 5--9 ┬Ám, and are borne on basidia that are divided lengthwise, at least near their tips.
