That’s interesting! Definitely not X. hypoxylon!

I’ve seen X. apiculata from central California, indicating that some of the Central/South American Xylaria can creep up the coast. This sort of looks like something in the X. cocophora complex, but you’ll need to look at the spores to be certain. If you’d like, I would love to take a look at this specimen.
