Hypocreopsis rhododendri is an ascomycete fungus. It is commonly known as hazel gloves due to the resemblance of its orange-brown, radiating lobes to rubber gloves, and because it is found on hazel (Corylus avellana) stems.
Hypocreopsis rhododendri is found on the hyperoceanic west coasts of Britain and Ireland and in the Atlantic Pyrenees in south western France. Pre-1920 records also exist for H. rhododendri from the Appalachian mountains in the eastern United States, but it is not known whether it remains extant in this region.
