So far as is known, no species of Typhula has heretofore been reported from Iowa. It is of interest, therefore, to record the occurrence of a striking species of this genus. On the rainy afternoon of October 4, 1941, it was discovered fruiting in great abundance on fallen oak leaves in a wooded ravine between North Liberty and Lake Macbride. The pale yellow clubs, 10-12 cm. tall, were developing over an area a hundred feet or more in length and twenty or thirty feet in width in such profusion that in places they suggested patches of yellow grass blades.
