Common Name=none Family=Sclerotiniaceae Genus/Species=Torrendiella clelandii (Hansf. 1954) Spooner 1987 Synonym=Hymenotorrendiella clelandii Abundance &
Distribution=Common in Eucalypt forests in Victoria at least, and probably so throughout south-eastern Australia (including Tasmania). Habitat &
Substrate=Grow on the bark of smooth-barked {Eucalyptus} species, such as the upper bark of {Eucalyptus regnans}. This of course includes twigs, which are covered in bark, but also large logs where this fungus can form large colonies. Description=The insides of the cup-like caps are smooth and beige-colored. The start off more urn-shaped but flatten with maturity. The outside is darker and covered with tiny hairs (setae), which are more dense around the rim of the cup. They are around 3–5mm in diameter but the largest I have measured was eleven millimeters. Similar Species=Possibly similar to Torrendiella madsenii, which I haven't encountered as, to my knowledge, that only grows on Nothofagus cunninghamii.
