This is the most awesome pic I’ve seen lately, it’s like Prototaxites.

if it helps, but I found a few clubs laying on the ground which were soot black and somewhat hollow. How do you differentiate between the species?

How big were these? It’s hard to tell from your photos. I do not believe that anamorph shape is unique to X. cubensis. The other members of the X. cubensis group are X. allantoidea, X. guyanensis and X. poitei, According to Jack Rodgers all three posses xylocoremium flabelliforme anamorphs. I found X. poitei in Gainesville in June two years ago, the Morphology in your obs is quite similar, IMO.

Also, cool obs! It’s always awesome to see the anamorph and mature stroma in the same picture!
