This is unusual stuff. It’s a fresh bunch of coral fungi growing among the decaying mater on a N.E. Wisconsin forest floor.
Coral fungi is also commonly called club fungi. A more accurate name is clavarioid fungi. This type of fungi typically has erect, simple or branched basidiocarps (fruit bodies) that are formed on the ground, on decaying vegetation, or on dead wood.

This was a great find on the forest floor at Potawatomi State Park, near Sturgeon Bay on Wisconsin’s Door County peninsula. I don’t know what kind of mushroom this is, but it sure stood out among the dead pine needles and other decaying matter.
