Clavulina cinerea (Asgrauwe koraalzwam (BE) / Grey Coral (EN) / Graue Koralle (DE) / Clavaire cendrée (FR) ) is a fungus in the Clavulinaceae family. This assh grey or grey-brown (occasionally tinged with lilac) coral-like fungus has flattened branches arising from a common base, with rounded ends rather than forked tips. It can be found growing beside footpaths in woodland in summer and autumn but is easily overlooked. The branches can be up to 10 cm tall. The cluster in this image is about a fist tall, with the late-afternoon sunlight just caressing the fungus.
