“That looks like something possibly related to Tolypocladium fractum, although this is apparently a rare species known only from the type. Tolypocladium japonicum is another possibility. There is a picture in Sung 2007 (fig 7 B). In general, this genus is known to fruit throughout the fall and winter, which is really interesting. T. ophioglossoides however seems to be found mid summer to early fall. But they are pretty durable and probably last on the landscape for a longer than things like C. militaris.”
