Clavulinopsis amoena

Yellow club

 

The fruit body is generally a simple, untwisted, club-like growth (generally circular in cross-section but sometimes flattened) but sometimes the tip may be forked. It is yellow to orange and may grow to 10 centimetres tall and up to 5 millimetres in diameter.

 

The fruit bodies appear on soil, usually in groups (but not in tight clusters), in native woodlands or forests.

 

Look-alikes

 

The fruit bodies of Ramariopsis depokensis (synonym: Clavulinopsis depokensis) and Ramariopsis fusiformis (synonym: Clavulinopsis fusiformis) are also club-like, yellow to orange and found on soil. Those of the former are commonly twisted (and flattened in cross-section) and those of the latter appear in tight clusters and develop brownish tips.

 

Calocera fruit bodies are often simple, yellow to orange stalks but they grow on wood.
