That looks more like it! Thanks for the second picture: the range of morphological variation in these things is astounding!

Some had red exudate and others yellow. I assumed that colour may change in different stages. Thanks for your hints towards other possible species. Second picture with more reddish colours of same observation has been uploaded.

Xylaria globosa always has blood red exudates. Unless you saw something that’s not in the picture, I don’t think this can be X. globosa. I’ve seen clear to yellow exudates in a lot other species — particularly pale yellow like this in X. adscendens, but it’s not the distinctive field marker that the red exudates are for X. globosa.
