I am interested in Ramaria. Due to the cheer number of Ramaria finds I review I usually don't comment on every single ID unless a lot of effort has been put into it. But feel free to tag me or message with questions and I'll be happy to answer or explain how to tell different genera or species apart.

If I have tagged your find as Gomphaceae it means that it's hard to tell if the observation belongs to the genus Phaeoclavulina or to the genus Ramaria. If I've tagged it as Gomphales it might be a Lentaria as well.

Ramaria formosa, Ramaria flava, Ramaria aurea and Ramaria botrytis are European species. Even though the names are frequently used in American litterature there is currently no evidence that they exists in North, Central or South America. An epiptype has recently been designated for each and they currently have no DNA-sequence matches outside of Europe.

The name Ramaria rasilispora is often erroneously used for any yellow Ramaria. Ronald Exeter et. al. has done a good job of describing it in the 2007 Ramaria of the Pacific Northwest which may be found free of charge here https://www.researchgate.net/publication/255719422.

Ronald Exeter has done a good job of describing many Ramaria of the Pacific Northwest in his 2007 Ramaria of the Pacific Northwest book. It may be found free of charge here https://www.researchgate.net/publication/255719422. Another great resource for PNW Ramaria is this project https://alpental.com/psms/ddd/Gomphales/Ramaria.htm (see Ramaria subgenus Ramaria and subgenus Laeticolora) and the pictoral key here
