Clavariaceae was once only known to include clavarioid fungi, but recent phylogenetic studies have moved three agaricoid genera into this family. These are Camarophyllopsis, Hodophilus and Lamelloclavaria
These saprotrophic, white-spore fungi typically have erect, simple, or branched fruit bodies that grow on the ground, or sometimes on decaying wood. It is not easy to tell one species apart from another without the aid of a microscope. But there are a few species that are distinctive enough to be recognized, like Clavaria sulcata and Clavaria zollingeri.
Camarophyllopsis is distinguished from other genera in this family by its small agaricoid fruiting body, that has a hygrophanous cap with subglobose to broadly ellipsoidal spores.
Like most of the club or coral fungi, without a microscope, it's not easy to tell one species apart from another.
