Microglossum

Notes

Green or orange-coloured, narrow, upright fruiting bodies on soil, up to about 5 cm tall. There are two species reported from New Zealand, distinguished by colour.
As with Geoglossum and Trichoglossum, there are very few collections from the South Island.
Thuemenidium has fruiting bodies of a similar shape, but they are smaller, bright yellow, and always on wood.
