    Just went out for a walk and found this on a broken branch of a tree. I don't know what it is, so am asking for anybodies thoughts.
    Hope J @Frog can give an answer.

    Lovely - Xylaria hypoxylon or similar Xylaria. In my region they prefer maples- do you know what it is on?

    @Frog It was on a small decaying log, I don't know what tree it came from as the bark was quite badly decade.
    But thanks for the ID J and yes it was very pretty and so delicate.

    Took some more photos this morning, lucky I did as a large slug was about to have breakfast.
    @Frog hope these photos are better J.
