Clavulinopsis fusiformis: the golden spindles fungus





The golden spindles fungus (Clavulinopsis fusiformis) is aptly named; golden spindle shapes coming out of the leaf litter on acidic soils hence it can be found in wooded areas of heath, such as that found around the Purbeck area. It comes out in autumn and is very common but becuase of its size it must be frequently over looked.  It is very similar to the yellow club and one or two other species so you need to be careful; ideed, I hope I have got this right!
Who cares if it is edible, there is not enough of it to eat!
