Interior photos show anything but what I was expecting to see. I think you are correct in calling this Xylaria. It really doesn’t look much like Xylaria to me, but the spores are at least reasponably close.

El interior parece estar muy dañado por insectos, pero anexo las fotos.

Are the spores from the affected exterior? Or from the fungus itself?

Can you section the ascocarp and display what the interior looks like?

The exterior does not look like a Xylaria to me. It looks degraded sphericules.

Still need size data. Photo of interior would be appreciated.

Si, es una Xylaria creciendo sobre un tronco muerto, habia otros ascocarpos pero solo este estaba con este crecimiento extraño.

Size? Interior?

Judging just from the outside, this looks similar to a parasitized Pisolithus. Which in itself would be rather interesting, since I’ve never seen one parasitized before.
