Xylaria cf. multiplex


Growing from an old piece of wood marking the edge of a path beneath some trees, near the Lodge at Tikal.


Roo Vandegrift suggested, "The numbers, the slender stromata, the contours of the stromata, and the decorticate substrate all make me think X. multiplex, but it’s impossible to tell without examining the spores under a microscope."

Oh sorry Karen, I was there in August, but for some reason Chrome won't hold the date I put in and I have to use Safari. Tonight I forgot and used Chrome!! Guess i have to go back and adjust all my spottings now. Bummer cos the internet is so slow!
