What is this?.

Found a clump of these hard dark brown/black 2-3" tall upright pods at base of old shrub stump.   Any ideas?.

    I would guess at Dead man's fingers Xylaria polymorpha. We get them on some old elm stumps here.

    I've no idea tbh but hope it's a group of truffles and you can retire on the proceeds :)
