User's notes

Umbagong Fungi Project: Located at the base of a moist, east-facing slope in grass. The first photo was taken 21 June 2020. The second on 7 July 2020. Heino Lepp identified this as likely to be Clavulina sp. He commented that "it is a fairly common grey or brownish-grey coral fungus, but the colour makes it easy to overlook even good-sized specimens when they grow in leaf/twig litter. Sometimes separate fruitbodies grow so close together that they merge to produce a quite irregular shape". The second photo shows its decomposition when the site was re-visited a couple of weeks later.
