Coral fungus

Clavulinopsis sp.

Description:

orange-yellow fruiting bodies, up 3 to 6 cm high, about 1 cm wide, cylindrical and unbranched.

Habitat:

Presumably saprobic; growing in dense clusters with fused bases, or occasionally gregariously; in woods under hardwoods or conifers, sometimes in grass; summer and fall.

Notes:

Though more consistent with the description of Clavulinopsis fusiformis than Clavulinopsis laeticolor, I am still having doubts which species this is. Spotted in Pacific Rim National Park Reserve, Vancouver island, Canada. (sources: see reference)

Congratulations on the nomination Jae. Beautiful series.

Corals are probably my favorite mushrooms. Earth stars would be right up there too. Great shot Jae. Thanks.
