magnification the ends of the coral seem to have “burnt out tips” arranged in a tooth-like pattern which resemble C. cristata. The ones I have found seem to resemble a roosters “comb”

Thanks Shua.

My concept of cristata had suggested that the fruit body should should have tightly arranged short branches arising from a thick base. But I see on Mushroom expert that this type may also be found with longer branches not so tightly arranged. I guess it’s a matter of growth stage.
