Clavulinopsis laeticolor (Fraaie knotszwam (BE) / Joyfully colored club fungus (EN) / Freudigfarbene Wiesenkoralle (DE) / Clavaire jolie (FR)) is a spiecies of fungi in the Clavariaceae family.
This tiny but lovely colored club fungus is easily overlooked. It is typically orange or orangish yellow. ("Laeticolor" = "joyfully colored") and can be distinguished from similar tiny, yellowish club mushrooms by its dry surface, its tiny size (often only a few centimeters in length), and its tendency to grow alone or in loose clusters (rather than by the dozens in tightly packed clusters) under hardwoods or conifers.
