Coral Mushroom

Clavulinopsis corniculata

Description:

Clavulinopsis corniculata - <9cm, like Calocera viscosa but brittle, not jelly, and on the ground. Sometimes club-shaped. Ramarias are larger and denser. Click the link I shared it's amazing. "They are best prepared as Mushroom Soup or en casserole. The small yellow, club-shaped, Clavaria pulchra (another beautiful name) is sometimes plentiful in spruce and fir woods in the northern part of our range. They have a delicate and nutty flavor when eaten raw, and should be served in Raw Mushroom Salad or in Mushroom Soup." -from Stalking the Wild Asparagus by Euell Gibbons

Habitat:

floor of moist mountainous conifer riparian woodland

Notes:

Edible. There is a beautiful full colour book with many more species than shown here, Ramaria of the Pacific Northwestern United States by Ronald L. Exeter, Lorelei Norvell and Efrén Cázares available directly from the BLM (along with a book on Phaeocollybia). You should at least download and print the free poster and hang it in your room.
