The 2nd Collection in over 100 Years

Originally described as Hypoxylon kellermanii from a collection made in Ohio in 1907. The doctors believe it may belong in Xylaria, despite their having moved it from Hypoxylon to Nemania in 2002. Observing the anamorph type in culture would inform proper generic placement.

Identified by Drs. Jack Rogers and Yu-Ming Ju during the 2015 Xylariapalooza at the University of Oregon Institute of Ecology and Evolution.
