Ramaria sometimes fruit in huge numbers, especially in the spring

Ramaria botrytis is not that common, but is distinctive. The cauliflower- like white stem and stubby branches with pink tips make it easier to identify than other large Ramarias.  Be sure to cut it open longwise to see if the worms have been there first. 

The yellow spring coral, Ramaria rasilispora, also pictured here, barely comes out of the duff and fruits in arcs under conifers. It is dull yellow with many branches and even more as it ages.
