Taxonomic notes

Calocera arborea is characterised by basidiomata scattered, cylindrical, simple or branched, dendroid, stipitate, pileate, bearing a subglobose to hemispherical head on the main axis and each branch, yellow to brown, soft-cartilaginous to firm-gelatinous, in transverse section through the pileus showing an organization into three zones: a central core of compact parallel hyphae surrounded by a zone of loosely interwoven hyphae enclosed by the hymenium. Internal hyphae branched, septate, thin- or thick-walled, hyaline, without clamp connections and basidiospores cylindrical to navicular, straight or curved, with an apiculum at the base, thin-walled, hyaline, 11-15 x 3.5-4.5 μm, 1-3 septate (Shirouzo et al. 2013).
