Fairy Clubs (Clavarioid) - C in CHEG

When I first saw these fungi, a few years ago, I initially did a double take and questioned, are these really fungi? A little research confirmed that yes they are and I soon realised that there are a quite a few different species, which, to a non-expert like myself, are tricky to tell apart! They are quite small, between 2 - 4cm tall but their bright yellow colour is quite eye catching. They often grow in the same place as waxcaps, so next time you are admiring the waxcaps, take a minute just to look for some yellow spindles peeping through the grass.
