These fungi images were contrastingly astounding by their brilliant whiteness amongst the green ground folige.(Ferns) They were taller than any Ramaria or Clavaria I have ever photographed. (about 100-150 mm high) The stems or stalks were hollow and extremely brittle, and actually made a crisp cracking noise when I broke them between my fingers. (They reminded me of slithers of ice when you break them and they give out that cracking sound.)
There was no aroma associated with them, and there was only one individual group although a few cm apart, growing in the area that I could see. The closest identification I can get to them is Clavaria alboglobospora. I feel that the tips on the images I have posted are much sharper at the ends than alboglobospora, otherwise the description fits fairly closely..It’s a start, and better than no name I suppose. I am sure someone more qualified will be able to improve on the naming and ID.
