There is no cap, and there are no gills, without good reason the thing should be called a club.

There is certainly a chance that it could be Clavariadelphus, taking advantage of the limited moist pocket underneath a log. We’ll get it sequenced one day and the names will be updated.

I’ve seen them look peglike before, but never so smooth and forked.

Young Gomphus can look like Clavariadelphus. I picked this thing up thinking that it was Clavariadelphus but it was growing as a clump with older more mature Gomphus bonari.
