Artomyces (Art-oh-my-seas) pixidatus (pix-ih-dah-tus) of the family Auriscalpiaceae is a fairly easy to identify fungus that often gets lumped in with the other "corals".
Pyxidatus means "box-like" in reference to the almost box-like edges of the fruitbody that is not shared with all other corals.
While these are edible, they can become bitter in age, especially when branches begin to brown.
Unlike most other corals or clubs, A. pyxidatus grows on wood, usually the wood will be wet. So look for it on downed wood, especially those near creek-beds that are consistently moist.
The second distinguishing characteristic of A. pyxidatus is the pointed crown at the tip of each branch. If you follow the branches down to where they split, you'll actually see its the same splitting pattern as the tips themselves! Look for ~4-6 tips to each crown.
Ramaria is a massive genus with most species a real pain to identify without a miscroscope/chemical tests. While several of these are eaten around the world, we suggest you do not consume these without taking further precautions. The tips of Ramaria are not split and they grow terrestrially (out of the ground, not wood).
These species have flatter, distinctive branching, even at the tips, but lack the crown-shaped branching. These also grow terrestrially.

Also known as the false-coral mushroom, recently moved from the genus "Tremellodendron", these tend to grow as a dense fimbrillar cluster from the ground and are not nearly as delicate as the other corals listed on this page.
These species are a bit tougher and the branches won't fall off quite as easily. While the fruitbody is heavily branched and the branches are thin, the tips will come to points. These species are commonly found growing on leaf-litter and not wood.
