Specimen available

Found growing under Eastern Hemlock and Laural. I have noticed area of what i call fungi zones these are area that support several different species of fungi. I have notice that you walking along in basically the same area and there are few to no fungi growing then suddenly you come to a spot and several different species are all growing. In pic # 2 you can see and abundance of this Ramaria growing with Gomphus floccosus Whats not in the pic is that there are several Amanita around also. Spore print yellow.
