Clavulinopsis fusiformis     Spindle-Shaped Coral

There are a number of unbranched (club-shaped), yellow, coral fungi.  This species grows in dense clusters and the fruitbodies tend to be narrower at both the top and the bottom (spindle-shaped) and are often flattened.  The lemon yellow to yolk-yellow fruitbodies are also hollow.  This is a widespread and very common species.
