The main species of coral and/or club fungi that exist in coral coast rainforests-including ones in Australia-are ones that are classified as being a part of the Clavariaceae family. These coral fungi come in a variety of various shapes and designs. For example, some are simple and unbranched, while others are upright and fleshy, with an extensive branching system. These types of fungi often represent that of the cauliflower when grown.
The spores of corals that live in coral coast rainforests are also usually very colorful, and some of them are even edible (some do not taste very well, on the other hand). The base of coral plants is sterile, but sporeres are produced from these plants on the surface, apart from the stem of the plant.
The place that most coral formations grow is in moist places, and they can dry out very quickly. They are often found more in soil than on decaying wood like other types of fungi.
