We just don’t know which one it is! I wish I had collected it and taken the time to get some better closeups. I am beginning to think that Xylaria genomes are more or less alike, albeit with more repeats and duplications than some genera. This species probably differs from others by just a few snps. They all probably vary by just a few snps. It seems with plenty of whole genome sequences, it would not take a PhD in bioinformatics to prove or dissprove this speculation. Just an analysis with tools that already exist.

would love to see this mature
