Good eye Danny on the black fruit bodies in photo #3. I guess they seemed convenient to overlook when I was on site (my bad). The 5th photo has a split in the upper layer – looks like it could be D. concentra.

shows all black, seemingly mature fruiting bodies (left) with visible perithecia. Still, without a cross-section or micro, making a species determination seems very ambitious, not to mention that two or more species of xylariaceous fungi have been known to co-occur on the same log.

over undetermined. Elsa: I did not cut it – you are right I should have. Danny and Petra: Have you looked at the reference in Barron p. 45?

I would have ruled out Myxogastria

were it not for Observation 132044, which could also be described as “hard” to the touch on account of growing over FBs of Annulohypoxylon. There doesn’t appear to be enough information here to make an ID, even to kingdom (Protista vs. Fungi). Until or unless that changes — either by looking more closely at this material or revisiting the collection site with the hopes of finding new material — it could be anything.

looks more like Hypocrea than other suggestions made

Similar appearance to our Aleurodiscus berggrenii (=Hypocrea berggrenii).

what makes you so sure of Hypocrea?

Didn’t you cut it?
