Clavicorona pyxidata              Crown Coral

This is one of the easiest of the coral fungi to identify with confidence.  It fruits on stumps or logs from spring until fall.  The branching is candelabra-like and at the tip of each branch a cluster of small branchlets give a crown-like apex.  It is one of  the most common of the coral fungi.
