Comments
This pale-yellow coral of montane regions is found commonly in the spring. The cauliflower-like fruiting bodies are edible, but infrequently collected for the table because of adhering dirt and debris. Two varieties are known, Ramaria rasilispora var. scatesiana, described above, and Ramaria rasilispora var. rasilispora which has more yellowish to yellowish-orange branches. Another yellowish, closely related coral is Ramaria magnipes. It also fruits in the spring, sometimes with Ramaria rasilispora, and is told apart by its larger size and spores.
