I appreciate the continued thoughts and specificity of opinion. I hope the dialogue will continue on this one as it is clearly above my own experience level. Thanks to both of you, Mark

coating the middle-upper portion of each stroma? if so, it’s unlike any X. hypoxylon I’ve ever seen. not a strong candidate shape-wise either. given the vast and generally underdocumented nature of the genus, my stone-cold certainty usually stops with Xylaria sp.
