On the path through deciduous woodland.
Caution: Do NOT use iSpot to identify fungi to eat!
Some fungi are very poisonous so a mistaken ID could have serious consequences.
No interactions present.
...and you'll see the tips are not as 'frayed' looking. Images of Crested Coral I've looked at seem a much closer match.
Are folks fooled by the colour? Anything from white to beige to flesh pink.
Thanks for the ID. I've looked at several books and websites and can't decide. Jordan suggests Crested Coral is more likely in coniferous woodland and there are no conifers around this. Collins points out Upright Coral discolours wine-red when bruised so I'll check tomorrow.

Clavulina coralloides (= C. cristata) is not fussy about what it grows with. Conifers yes, but often under beech and very often under Rhododendron. I think the litter has to be nutrient poor, that's all.
last time I saw Clavulina coralloides was in Exbury Gardens which is FULL of Rhododendrons!
I don't think I need to check after all!
