I have finally decided that the dark, nearly black funnel-shaped structures in this photo are actually spore-producing structures. The are perhaps .5cm above the surrounding bark, have a whitish rim on them, and the leafy palmate upright lichens next to them could be some kind of Parmelia, but not, I believe, Parmelia sulcata. Because of the varying height of this species, it was quite difficult to get both in some kind of focus. On the tree both looked nearly pine green, but not in this photo.
