Two species, but maybe more…

The difference between the two species (and also pink asexual stages described elsewhere on MO) are well addressed on this page:
Basically D.concentrica is sessile, but D.vernicosa has a rudimentary stalk, or stem if you will.
Unfortunately, the name doesn’t appear on Xylariaceae at all at:
I love that site, but it has one major flaw: it doesn’t show distribution of the species, so it’s very hard to weed out the species that are not supposed to be at your particular location. One can try and deduct from where voucher specimen were found, but it’s not precise.

I usually look far and wide, often “discovering” interesting species on European sites, then trying to find out whether those species are encountered in America – that’s the hardest part. Also, we tend to default our IDs to the “lowest common denominator” – the commonest and best illustrated species, while their siblings are overlooked.

piqued my interest

found this online
the stalks and the texture of the surface look comparable to yours.

How did you come about this name?

Just a thought… (about D.vernicosa)

Probably “just” D.concentrica
