Observation 196465: Xylaria hypoxylon (L.) Grev.
When: 2014-11-20
(52.5923° -1.4067° )
No herbarium specimen

Notes: This is the largest clump of Stag’s Horn fungus that I have seen, and for a moment I thought it might be a Ramaria of sorts. However, on closer inspection the branched nature and the lack of a single base, confirmed this for me. On touching the branches, my fingers were powdered white.
The specimen was found on a piece of wood debris on the side of a path. Plenty of nettles nearby.
The specimen had grown to about 5-6 cm high.
