Hericium Americanum closely resembles other members of its genus. It is the only one with both a branching structure and spines longer than about a centimeter.
Just to make things confusing, Hericium americanum was formerly known as Hericium corralloides, which today refers to one of the other species (the one formerly known as H. ramosum).
