This 4" high Coral fungus, growing under Douglas Firs and Western Redcedars, has passed its prime.
I don't know why the stupiz app deleted my description for these. But This was one of those inedible coral mushroom that have a murky yellow color, and a hint of green on it. I cooked it with a bit of oil and salt at the time I didn't know much about them, and omg it was so bitter the moment it touched my taste buds. I spited it out of course.
Found in leaf litter under young coast live oak. The orange (ochraceous) spore print and lack of crown-like branch tips suggest Ramaria, according to the key in Mushrooms Demystified. Keying to species was difficult.
The genus Ramaria comprises approximately 200 species of coral fungi. Several, such as Ramaria flava, are edible and picked in Europe, though they are easily confused with several mildly poisonous species capable of causing nausea, vomiting and diarrhoea; these include R. formosa and R. pallida.
