Xylaria sp.


Appearing in a half barrel used as a planter (possibly made of oak?) were these thin charcoal fingers with white tips. About 20mm tall so far.


Home garden in outer marginal suburbia.


Yet to find species. Further progress will be added.
Update... they were almost gone after 2 days. It seems Xylaria polymorpha is a good candidate species but too many species to choose from and most need microscopic work.
Division: Ascomycota
