The University of North Carolina Chapel Hill Herbarium (NCU) was founded in 1908 by William Chambers Coker and is a Department within the North Carolina Botanical Garden of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. NCU has ca. 17,000 macrofungi (esp. collections of William Chambers Coker & John Nathaniel Couch) and ca. 20,000 microfungi (esp. collections of Arthur Bliss Seymour). Cataloging of our macrofungi is complete; cataloging of our microfungi in mycoportal.org started in October, 2015. The Herbarium also curates vascular plants (world-wide, but with focus on native flora of Southeastern USA); red marine algae of temperate zone (esp. collections of Max Hommersand & Paul Gabrielson); lichens & bryophytes of southeastern USA (esp. collections of Gary Perlmutter); and plant fossils of the Devonian age (esp. collections of Patricia Gensel). NCU is located in the center of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill Campus and welcomes visitors & researchers. Contact Curator for information on hours & parking.

Collection RemarksPlants exactly the size and appearance of C. decurrens C. & B. no. 120 but do not turn pink when bruised, the delicate pale tips sharply divaricating [?] in some. Color light yellow when very young & fresh then dark buffy ochraceous & with pink & olive tints where rubbed (after a long time). It is much more delicate than var. australis. 1.5-2.5 cm high, delicate. Taste mild & pleasant.; spores minutely puctate, 2.5-3.4x5.5-7. This is same plant as no. 7129 which are still more delicate specimens. Looks like crispula in [illegible]. On a tree trunk [illegible] looks like rotten, deciduous. Yes, checked by Adams.
