Hi Douglas, many thanks for your comments re. the ID of my recent coral fungus (Ramaria.) I’ve just posted a photo which shows the bottom of the mushroom, which may give further clues.

Kari.

Looks like…

Looks a little more like a Ramaria. Ramaria will have yellow-tan spores, and Clavaria will have white spores. You can see the spore color in the spores that gather in the branch forks. But it is good to get a photo of the mushroom to the base, and it would be more obvious here from the photo if you have one laying down next to the other to see the base well.
