On wood

It was directly on wood. Indeed I can see that the color does not match so it is probably R. stricta as you suggested. Thanks Gerhard!

Was it directly on wood (including buried wood or roots)?

Or in needle litter?
Ramaria flaccida (see my recent observation) is more yellowish and lacks greenish branch tips. But to do microscopy is inevitable with Ramaria. Also use Kristan’s monography of the Ramaria of Germany.
There are a few other possibilities but you cannot tell by a photo for sure.

Maybe some other ramaria

This one is small (+- 5cm height).

Could it be another type of Ramaria, such as R. flaccida ?
