Dead Man’s Fingers

Xylaria polymorpha, commonly known as dead man’s fingers, is a common inhabitant of forest and woodland areas.

The fingers grow from decaying wood, but as the name “polymorpha” suggests, the shape can be variable and sometimes the digits form more of a fist.

I look forward to finding a dead man’s fist.
