the world of fungi is fascinating. a few months ago i watched a film on TV about slime mold, amazing. If you ever can see one do not miss it. under youtube there are some clips. here is one

I think looks different from Clavulina
Pl. check comparative images at Phylum Ascomycota

Any idea about the family of this one ? 

I have no idea …!

Possibly something in Tremellaceae
Respected … we now have one more expert in our group Suhaib Firdous Yatoo who have accepted my invitation to join our group… 
So please also forward to him post related to mushrooms in future, i hope we together will be able to identify mushrooms on our site with much accuracy provided most of the details including pileus, stipe, volva, gills and ecology must be visible in images…
