Distinguishing Feature : A short deep yellow branched fungus resembling stubby antlers growing on dead coniferous trees in damp woods.
Related to : Yellow Clubs Fungus but is taller and branched.

A gelatinous branching fungus of the genus dacromycetes (Family Dacromycetaceae), which resembles stubby stags antlers.

It grows on damp decaying dead conifer trees. Other similar species in the family Clavariceae are more brittle and grow on other substrates. Grows all year round, but especially late autumn and early winter. It is poisonous.

One from this morning. Out searching for fungi, but sadly not a very good year at my local patch.

Sorry I cannot take the credit for that, that was nature's doing. Wink

Well spotted Richard. These are uaully very tiny indeed and you have produced a very lovely shot.
Sorry to hear of the paucity of specimens but that was exactly my opinion after looking for them a couple of weeks back.

very easy to spot as they grow in the same area all the time plus knowing the area they like makes it easy
