Dan’s link looks like a match. I’d rule out X. hypoxylon or anything like it on account of this combed fibrous look to the outer surface area. I’ve never seen that in a Xylaria before.

Very cool!

This looks like it might be the same kind of Xylaria.

Hi Dave,

Yeah, I just found these a few days ago, in a part of the park I had never explored before. I think they probably came up last fall and wintered over. They look kinda old. The snow has been gone for about a week.

Did you just find these, Dan? How long has your snow been gone? Wonder if these may be old fruit bodies that have survived the winter.

maybe another species, it seems a bit large to be X. hypoxylon.
