I’ve found a key to Xylaria online here:
I’ll see if that helps. One comment at the beginning of the article says:
“For example, X. cornu-damae and X. hypoxylon are keyed out as slender species,
but robust specimens are sometimes encountered.” ;)
More fun: An illustration of X. hypoxylon from Saccardo’s “Fungi Italici”:
What would be your suggestion for species? I was also considering
Xylaria longipes, based upon these photographs:
What suggested X. hypoxylon to me was the illustration of a photograph
showing what is said to be its conidial form at the bottom of this page:
I have not saved specimens, but can find them this year. They
were growing at the base of oak trees.
The full-sized image is perhaps 1 1/2 times life size.
with Christian: the fruitbodies look much too thick and stout for X.hypoxylon!
