Meadow Coral (Clavulinopsis corniculata)

This small, yellow, branhed fungus grows amongst grass on lawns and in pasture. It is common and, because of its size, I am sure it is oftgen overlooked. It grows in these solitary clusters, usually in autumn. It is easy to see why it is called the Moeadow Coral; it looks like it could , indeed, be a coral, and it grows in Meadows.

It is not edible of course, there is not enough of it.
