Clavulina cinerea?

I found several of these well hidden in amongst dense moss in the lawn. I 'gardened' away the moss for the photo.
The closest I can get to an ID is Clavulina cinerea. Am I right?

Hi Gwen

This is a Ramariopsis, either R. subtilis or R. kunzei, not readily distinguishable in the field. They need microscopy.
