Thanks for the update: sloppy Latin will be the death of us all!

It actually was very common in this place, we saw quite a few Liquidambar seed pods with Xylaria on them.

It was published incorrectly as Xylaria liquidambar, and the correct Latin is Xylaria liquidambaris according to Index Fungorum.

Great find!

Actually, I shouldn’t have said “very common”. I see it referred too in the literature very commonly, but I’ve never seen one, out here in Oregon. That’s great!
