A new species of Xylaria from Hong Kong, China, is described based on its teleomorphic characters and is distinguished by its conical stromata and small spores. The fungus was found on the trunk of a living Bauhinia variegata in an urban park, and the infected tree exhibited overall declining symptoms including branch dieback and leaf discoloration.
