Fungi Outer Hebrides

Phylum: Basidiomycota   Family: Clavariaceae

Clavaria tenuipes Berk. & Broome

Spathulate head tapering to a spindly base, a watery-pink, drying to a pale yellow. It can be confused with Clavaria argillacea but that species is most often found in association with heather or rhododendron species. Found in poor, unimproved pasture.

A widespread but sparse distribution in England with only a handful of records for Scotland and new to the Outer Hebrides.
