Used references: I agree with the description of Neolecta vs Clavinopsis, but according to the “Trial field key to CLUB FUNGI in the Pacific Northwest”, http://www.svims.ca/council/Clubs.htm#nYel, prepared for the Pacific Northwest Key Council by Ian Gibson, Neolecta vitellina has often been mistaken for Neolecta irregularis of eastern.

I don’t think Clavulinopsis laeticolor…

Clavulinopsis laeticolor is pretty thin and even along its whole length, and has a even color to the base, or only slight gradual changes in color. These seem to have a white base, with a hard edge to a bright yellow top, and the tops are rather uneven, slightly bumpy. I would suggest Neolectra irregularis for these perhaps.
