though they resemble some sort of club or colorful Xylaria (and indeed were suspected of being such at the time of collection), these are immature Coltricia of a sort which parasitizes palm trees at their bases. the pilei have yet to develop, but the context tissue is typically colored and patterned. compare with Observation 177766.
