all negatives.

if i leave the digital darkroom alive (muscle atrophy, ocular damage and vitamin D levels notwithstanding), they’ll be ready by the end of the summer.

Thanks Danny,

collected a Xylaria with very, very similar surface ornamentation here in Bolivia — same longitudinal cracks/fissures revealing a lighter background. a cross section would say

everything.

Those are some great suggestions. I don’t think we have anything definitive, but at least some good possibilities, AND sounds like you’ve seen some things that may be like this. I’ll forward your great ideas along to the fella that found them, and see if we can find out more about them.

Thanks!

sycamore? Maybe a different tree…

The bark looks pretty rough. Maybe you have a picture that was not cropped?

The dark and light pattern reminds me of the little black guys here:
observation 34811

It could be a Xylaria, but it might also be an insect cocoon of some kind. A cross section would help to narrow down the possibilities.

I have no idea …

what this is, or if it is even a fungi for sure, but I think it is. I’m posting this for a friend, Anthony Zukoff who took this picture yesterday. He says there were a number of these growing from the bark of a sycamore tree. He described them as fleshy, but tough, small, club-like projections. The closest thing I can relate to is perhaps some type of Xylaria, which is a club fungus that grows on/from wood.

Any ideas what the heck this is or could be? Has anyone seen something like this? All help is much appreciated.
