I look forward to Nicolle’s deeper work to settle a name, if possible.

the site that Debbie linked, http://www.aranzadi.eus/micologia/x, misidentifies X. violaceorosea as X. apiculata, nor do I believe the author’s photo entitled X. filiformis is at all that taxon, which is much more slender (hence the name).

great Nicolle

It would be great to put a name to this one!

and I would be delighted to send you a piece of it.

the rest will get vouchered at UCB.

if you are a Xylaria fan, I also have a few really interesting Xylarias from Australia that I will never be able to name on my own.

Did you collect this specimen?
