Clavicorona pyxidata is a coral fungus that is commonly called crown coral or crown-tipped coral fungus.

Dear Vijaysankar ji,
Coral fungi are of no interest with regard to its edibility because of their texture. They may be edible, means non poisonous but many of the genera are of either no culinary value or have limited usage.

Dear Vijayasankar ji,
Coral fungi appear as clumps of branching stems which point upward. They do look much like coral. Most are tan, whitish or yellowish; a few are pinkish or purple. Also called club fungi, antler mushrooms or doghair mushrooms. Size: clusters may be up to 8" high.They grow during summer and fall; in wooded areas, growing on the ground or on decaying logs.A few coral fungi have a laxative effect, and some people seem to be particularly sensitive. Avoid coral fungi that taste bitter, bruise brown when handled or have gelatinous bases. These are most likely to case trouble. No serious poisonings from coral fungi have been reported. Tips and upper branches are most tender and are sometime taken as food.
 
Regards
Tanay
