Clavulina cristata is a mycorrhizal fungus that grows on the ground and is scattered beneath the Douglas-fir. They start out glowing white and become kind of peachy yellow with age. There are some complications with identification as there is another fungus that will attack this one, changing the colour so that it is similar to a different Clavulina. One author just suggests referring to all white pointy corals as belonging to the "Clavulina cristata group". I'm good with that!
