Notes: Identification is a guess, based on description given for Calocera viscosa in The Audubon Society Field Guide to North American Mushrooms. No sporocarps observed was over 1 inch in height; most were well under that size. No sporocarp appears to be forked,as in C. viscosa, which is also much larger. The bright yellow coral-mushroom-like appearance keys out to this most closely. I do not recall pictures of it in my mushroom books, though. As seen in the photo, growing directly from wood, with a white basal tuft of mycelium at the attachment to the substrate. Since the branch/log had already lost its bark, I cannot tell you what species of plant it was growing from.
