The smooth cap

Definitely does mean something. The acorn, however, means little, since even mycorrhizal species can form fruitbodies around objects in the substrate without necessarily “growing out of them”.

You can also see where a slug has eaten in the side of the stipe – the flesh is orange, unlike in Elaphocordyceps where the flesh is white.

you can see the fibrillose partial veil around the edge of the cap, and as Danny mentioned the head is smooth, not pimpled with perithecia as in an Elaphocordyceps.
