Xylaria sp.? polymorpha? Dead Man's Fingers
I got a hot tip on a creepy fungus. Thanks Alice! There were, no doubt, prettier things in Fern Valley today, but this is too cool to ignore. I read Tom Volk's Fungus of the Month page pretty regularly, about once a month, and he has this entry on the FV fingers.
