when you look at the link to wikipedia, it look not really alike. but over google image with some picture of some juveniles i will also agree. i will not make another suggestion, because the first one, nailed the id, but i will give you some more infos/refferenzes: the common name is "Candelabra Coral; crown coral or crown-tipped coral fungus" { http://eol.org/pages/11464507/overview }, here some pictures : [ http://www.google.nl/search?hl=nl&su... ], then the wikipedia-link to the explcit species: [ http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Artomyces_p... ]. it is a "basidiomycota" from the group of "clavaroids" in the own distinctiv genus of "artomyces" formerly in the fam of "clavariaceae's". here another great site for american fungi : http://www.mushroomexpert.com/artomyces_.... hope to be helpfull, good luck.
