Hi Teresa, I had high hopes of the coral fungi guide you sent us, but alas, it didn't seem to have any photos highly similar to this one. Pity. Jackie

Hi Pam, According to the little book of corals that Teresa sent me a pdf of, that species is supposed to have dark tips to the branches, which my thing doesn't have. But almost all the Ramaria illustrated in that are way more branched than my thing. Mine were all as shown in the photo, not very branched and a bit wrinkly.

I agree the tips are more blunt rather than the sharpers tips on the species I suggested even though a couple of branches at the back were starting to get darker tips a lot of the others too immature to tell. It was a toss up between that species and C. cinerea which changes colour from almost white when immature through to darker tones of grey/greyish purple, of which I've seen various forms. Regardless of the species which was put up as a suggestion to generate discussion, this specimen belongs to the genus Clavulina. So maybe just leave it at that. I can send the photo off to a colleague of mine who specialises in 'corals' and see what he has to say if you like. I think that would be a useful exercise, though he does sometimes take forever to get back with an answer!! Though that would need to be cleared with Teresa to see what she thinks. It's always exciting to have these discussions about specimens because I'm only seeing one image whereas you and others in the area are seeing the live specimens. It's a great way for all of us to learn and refine our observation skills.

Hi Pam and Teresa, Well I'm keen to have it sent off to anyone expert enough in corals to have a better shot of ID'ing it from my photos. I'd offer to go back for more, but it's probably disappeared by now.

You could have a look. Sometimes I find that this genus hangs around for a while, as long as the conditions are suitable. If that's the case if it's OK with you Teresa if you have time to dry it and send it to Michael. Or otherwise tell Jackie how to do it. That's the ideal solution to a confusing species.

Sure
   13 May 2019
Bit too flat out just at the moment, but I'll bear it in mind in future.
   13 May 2019
PS I actually meant passing the photo on to the corals expert, not the actual fungus.

I'm still waiting on confirmation on species. Genus OK, though not comfortable with the species name. Sorry about the delay will get back to you as soon as I can.
   31 May 2019
Maybe we should hold off on an ID to species level until Pam's corals expert gets back to her?
