i see two possibilities

given the firmness you mention:

something “xylariacious” (resembling the genus Xylaria and allies), or the stromata of an entomopathogen on a family of (dead) wood-dwelling critters still inside this stick. Both opitons are ascomycetes. Verifying the presence of perithecia (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Perithecium) — a good diagnostic feature for ruling in or out various ascomycete families — could be useful, but they would not be visible at this magnification, if they even exist here.

you’re right
