We came across this coral looking mushroom while on our mushroom foray at the beginning of September. According to the books it is from the Clavariaceae family. This family is a large and diverse group of club and coral shaped basidiomycetes. Typical of mushrooms one species of this family is poisonous the rest are edible although not all of them taste good.

Genus Clavariadelphus
