Ah ha! Just got a reply back from Dr. Yu-Ming Ju — he might be the nicest of all possible people. And, better than being nice, he recognizes it!


Dear Roo:

The collection is nice, and the photos are great! I believe that the fungus is Xylaria frustulosa (Berk. & M. A. Curtis) Cooke, a penzigioid species. Its epithet has been combined with Kretzschmaria, Penzigia, Hypoxylon, etc. probably because it does not remind a person much of a Xylaria.

Best wishes,
Yu-Ming

thanks Roo!
