Habitat: Clavaria acuta usually occurs on bare soil in somewhat disturbed areas.
Conservation Status: Not of concern
Clavaria acuta is a small pure white terrestrial club that grows as scattered individuals or fused pairs or trios. Often the clubs exhibit a translucent stipe with a whiter upper fertile portion. C. vermicularis is very similar (microscopically nearly identical) and somewhat more common. It also grows on soil, but in dense clusters of usually larger clubs. Its species name comes from the Latin for worm.
