Dead Man's Fingers

Xylaria polymorpha or Dead Man's Fingers growing on a dead tree near Cromford in Derbyshire. Good name isn't it?

I bet with a name like that, you can't eat them. Were they edible, they would have been called "Poor man's sausages".

Sam - they don't look very tasty either, although I think they may be related to truffles.
