Clavaria caulifloriformis Leathers (1956)

Ramaria caulifloriformis is a species of coral fungus in the family Gomphaceae. It was first described in 1956 as Clavaria caulifloriformis by Chester Leathers from collections made near Topinabee, Michigan.[2] It was transferred into the genus Ramara in 1970 by E.J.H. Corner.[3] The creamy-brown fruit bodies measure 5–15 cm (2.0–5.9 in) tall by 3–15 cm (1.2–5.9 in) wide, and have a cauliflower head-like appearance (for which the species is named). Spores are ellipsoid, verrucose (covered with warts or wartlike projections), and measure 8–10 by 4–5 µm.[2]
