Description:

This photo was taken late last year, but I have already seen the same fungus this year. The fruits are generally about 2-4 cm long.

Identifications

Caution: Do NOT use iSpot to identify fungi to eat!

Some fungi are very poisonous so a mistaken ID could have serious consequences.

Species interactions

No interactions present.

I agree that this might be X

I agree that this might be X polymorpha, but I believe it to be very difficult to distinguish that species from X longipes without microscopic investigation (see eg http://www.mushroomexpert.com/xylaria.html). So it might be better to just ID the genus as Xylaria and add the possible species as a comment.

Agreed

I agree with your comments Martincito and I would have preferred genus only but have still agreed as you said might be.
