I’m going with that mouthful of a name, Phaeoclavulina curta.

Apparently here in CA it also grows with Monterey Cypress, and the spore color is also a match. I have the fruit bodies, I can see if the rest lines up, too.

Here’s a link to the MKW species page:

First of all it’s not Erin…
I’m not sure if this is the same as the redwood sp.

if you like it so much…

about Phaeoclavulina curta?
It’s quite obvious that these and other similar coral aren’t Ramaria and needed a new name.
