Clavulinopsis corniculata: the meadow coral



Meadow coral (Clavulinopsis corniculata) is a small, yellow, branched fungus grows amongst grass on lawns and in pasture. It is common and, because of its size, I am sure it is often overlooked. It grows in solitary clusters, usually in the autumn. It is easy to see why it is called the meadow 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.
