Thanks for your comment and opinion, that was clear enough. It was so long ago that I don’t reccal the details, but for sure (as the photos show) there was not a “stipe”.

Difference C. falcata and C. vermicularis

Clavaria falcata has a destinct ‘stipe’, which is usually almost translucent white, where as C. vermicularis has no destinct ‘stipe’. Here’s my spotting of C. falcata, so you can see what I mean: http://mushroomobserver.org/202161
With this in mind, I think your first photo is not C. falcata, but C. vermicularis or C. fragilis. I don’t know the difference between those two species though.

Thanks, Andreas, for your proposal.

How to separate Clavaria falcata from the similar species C. vermicularis and C. fragilis, which also seem very similar to me?

I chose the wrong name,
