Phaeoclavulina

A delightfully diverse segregate of Ramaria

The fruiting bodies of Phaeoclavulina species are called coral fungi because of their coral-like branching patterns.  Microscopically, Phaeoclavulina basidiospores may resemble miniscule spiny hedgehogs or warty toads, depending on whether the species is tropical or temperate! Species diversity and ecological patterns of Phaeoclavulina species in Mexico recently were assessed, along with implications for conservation of these fascinating fungi. To learn more about the remarkable diversity, rarity and ecology of species of Phaeoclavulina, click on the photograph of basidiospores to access the article by Gonzáles-Ávila et al.
