Possible Ramaria and a Clavunlinopsis type somethings?

Please try to include photos to show all parts of the fungus, eg top, stem, and gills.
Note any smells, and associated trees or plants (eg oak, birch). A spore print can be very useful.

Possible Ramaria and a Clavunlinopsis type somethings?

Post by Algenon » Sun Jan 05, 2020 7:48 pm

Walking at Bedgebury Pinetum out with some kids geocaching today and a couple of oddities caught my eye. I’ve not posted on a forum for years so I’m sure the protocol will irk, apologies in advance.

Among Cypress leyland , biggest of three clumps was about 10cm across and height. Beautifully rich golden colour throughout. Fronds/branches were way denser than any Clavaria I've ever seen. I didn’t disturb it as it was a family day out and I was in a hurry. Am I mad for thinking this is a Ramaria species?

Further on we encountered this group of club/spindle like fruiting bodies. Directly under spruce specimens. Scattered over an area of about 1mtr square. Fruiting bodies were up to 8cm at their longest.
Any advise/steering greatly appreciated.
