next time I’m down there I’ll collect, dissect, and photograph and put the images up for you. Your assistance is truly appreciated. T

I’d want to see the inside, and spores, before trying to peg something like this to genus. From shape and texture, it could easily be any of the proposed Xylariaceae genera.

I’ve proposed a family level taxon because there is not enough evidence to support a generic level taxon. Microscopy, or molecular data, would go a long way here. An Australian expert in the Xylariaceae may be able to confidently propose a genus, or even species, if you are able to provide the specific host species.

Rocky, do you think the Australian specimen will be the same as the other ones you have listed? ?
