Phaeoclavulina species are considered ectomycorrhizal, yet some of the photos below were taken in a broadleaved/podocarp forest. with no obvious ectomycorrhizal partner present.
Fruit bodies: Up to 50 x 25 mm, branched, stout. Stalk up to 25 x 9 mm hard-fleshy, off-white at base the rest same as branches, bruising to chocolate. Branches few, stout, size up to 6 mm thick light brown bruising as stalk, re-branching in 1-2 ranks; Branch tip blunt, off-white to prolonged and blue-grey or powder-blue.
A much more robust form of this Phaeoclavulina species can also be found, though not as common.
Common name: None
Found: Native Forest
Height: 75 mm

Although not obvious this fungi does have blue tips, Oddly I have seen this fungus in two forms as above and below and the more robust form at the bottom of this page.
Above and below is this fungus that is very robust in form I am not convinced that this is a diffrent species but rather its what it looks like when inmature. Interesting I have only found this form in one location and not in the described habitat.
