Actually this did not occur to me. But I’m now supposing that the black undercoating on the typical Xylaria species (not to say this is the genus!) is a character which persists when the fruit body lasts a long time.

Just added a micro photo of…? I scraped some of the crusty black surface of the head of a fruit body and looked for stuff under the scope. My complementary free with purchase of Captain Crunch microscope :-) empowered me to find the fiber seen in the addition. Nothing resembling a spore was found.
