Dear Subhada Ji,

Thanks for your lovely efforts to resend the pictures, these snaps are good enough hence I am not craving for the best. The problem was Rashida Ji's picture was bit small. As you and Rashida ji has suggested this to be a mushroom, I have a completely different inference regarding the bio-form in the photos which is not at all mushrooms but Lichen, coralloid lichens are very common, initially same conclusion (lichen) came into my mind when I saw the picture posted by Rashida Ji hence kindly asked her for the larger picture. this Lichen belongs to the genus Cladonia sp but without the study of the mycobiont and the phycobiont its hard for me to move into the species level at least the fruit bodies could have helped me out but alas the lichen in not in it's reproductive state. Through Google search you can see an array of photos of this genus comprising of different species. Hope you will cherish the beauty of nature and the smooth taste of Fungal Biology and Lichenology.

Best Regards


Tanay

Dear Subhada Ji,
This not lichen this is mushroom "white coral mushroom" probably belonging to the genus Clavulina . Can be C cristata but not sure about the species.
