Recognized by sight: I believe that is a Fabaceae seed pod: Xylaria xanthinovelutina is specific to legume pods, but has a broad range in the family in the tropics. The long, wiry stromata, the hairy bases, the nearly naked perithecia are all indicative. Also, it’s the most common seedpod Xylaria in the neotropics. There is a variety (or related species) that grows on wood at high elevation, too.
