P+o/r strong, tips really are white-felted

There is a group of species with “soft”, “dull”, “frosty”, “felty” tips, like this has, of which C. phyllophora is the one I’ve most often seen. It has a very contorted variable morphology, and this is certainly within the range of variation I’ve seen.

These look like miniature trees with exotic fruit on them.
