Collection location: Forest near Elgin St., Pembroke, Ontario, Canada [Click for map]

Who: Paul Derbyshire (Twizzler)

No specimen available

These little yellow club shapes look like Clavaria or relatives, but are diminutive — less than a centimeter tall and only a millimeter or two wide. They were near rotting wood. I very nearly overlooked them but they were close to the mushrooms in obs. 11239.

Update: The same area had numerous other fungi three days later, including several tiny agarics (obs. 11323 and 11325), more Clavulinopsis laeticolor (obs. 11324), and some small but non-tiny mushrooms other than these ones (obs. 11317 and 11401, plus some that were not photographed). I counted at least seven species in the general area, and perhaps eight, including our old friend Cortinarius alboviolaceus (obs. 11401), on the 18th.
