Translated from the blog of Ms Anke Bruin, warden on Vlieland island in the Netherlands:

Rare mushroom found on Vlieland

November 26, 2015

Did you know that we have here on Vlieland two volunteers who work together on mushrooms in the sand dunes?

Sjoukje Mulder and Joost van Bommel delve for mushrooms and chart them in the coastal strip (the dunes next to the sea). Recently, on their way back, Sjoukje saw near Pad van 30

a cranberry field

a special mushroom. Initially it was registered on http://www.waarneming.nl as strict-branch coral fungus. One expert thought he saw something else and after microscopic examination it turned out to be Ramaria roellinni. And that is very special: recently this mushroom was discovered as a new species for the Netherlands; and now also on Vlieland. There is no Dutch name for it yet.
