On the Peachtree park walk at the Upper Allyn River, NSW, in early December 2017, we found some examples of Dead Man's Fingers, or Xylaria. Xylaria are hard to identify to the species level as they are a complicated fungi, with a perchant for being able to decompose fallen wood. Other sites suggest these ascomycetes turn completely black over time, but we rather suspect that some remain white.
