Dan, There are many examples of the sexual and asexual stage of Ascomycetes having different names. It has always seemed strange to me as well… So as far as I know the cup stage is Holwaya and the match sticks are Crinula.

This is tiny with the small cups (sexual stage)sometimes present as well. It is not as tough as a Xylaria.

what is it? xylaria like?
