Fairy fingers (Clavaria fragilis)

Fairy fingers (Clavaria fragilis syn. Clavaria vermicularis) is a club fungus easily recognized by its thin, white, erect mushrooms, or "fingers." Though they may have a flexible, rubbery appearance, they are actually quite brittle and easily broken; hence, the species epithet fragilis.
