Mucronella sp.

Mucronella fruit bodies are white (to yellowish with age), pendulous and grow from the sides or undersides of dead wood, typically in wet forests. The soft fruit body resembles a narrow cone, with the pointy end lowest and with a short stem holding the broader, upper end to the wood. The fruit bodies range from several millimetres to a couple of centimetres in length and usually appear in groups.

 

At least two species occur in the ACT, macroscopically similar but microscopically different.

 

Look-alikes

The shape and pendulous habit make the genus easy to recognize. Sometimes fruitbodies may grow in a dense group and then have a superficial resemblance to the genus Deflexula, which includes branched, white fungi that also have a pendulous habit.
