Upright coral

Ramaria stricta


White or pale cream turning buff with age. Tough and rubbery coral-like structure with a short base often ‘rooted’ in buried wood, the repeatedly forking, slender upright branches end in sharp tips. Surface is smooth, often flattened, spores are produced on the coral surface, which turns wine-red when bruised. 4 to 10 cm tall and up to 8 cm across the whole fruitbody.


Mycorrhizal or saprobic on stumps or buried wood often under beeches but also occasionally with conifers. Evidence that Ramaria stricta can sometimes be saprobic rather than mycorrhizal comes from its frequent appearance in flowerbeds and other areas that have been mulched using wood chippings.


Spotted in Paleispark 't Loo in rural area of Apeldoorn, Holland. (sources:see reference)
