See Mushroom Expert for more info.

Mycena galericulata is in the order Basidiomycota and division of Hymenomycetes (Coral Fungi). Coral fungi is usually noted by its finger-like growth. Some of this growth is a simple stalk and other growth is branched like a piece of coral. The simple growth is sometimes called Club Coral. The Club Coral species can be very similar to the club-shaped sac fungi. One way to get closer to identification is to note whether the fungi is fragile and brittle, making it a coral fungi verses the tougher sac fungi.
