Yazdi ji,

this sort of mushrooms are coral mushrooms, normaly grow on decaying wood,
the corol can be between creamwhite till redish yellow, perhaps depends on
how old they are. the name coral comes from the form.

there are many diff.looking mushrooms called coral. the one you have is also
coral.
