scajaquada:

some white coral fungus i found in late june but never posted about.  its been years since i last saw coral fungus of any kind.  i found purple coral fungi in this same woods in 2008-ish
its blurry, but you can see several more clumps of the same species on the same log.  
i was confused at first because its looks a lot like bearded tooth fungus, which is an edible mushroom that fruits in the fall, but bearded tooth grows downward not upward and its fingers are much finer.
