Probably Hypomyces aurantius

This a “Cladobortyum” anamorph of a Hypomyces. You can tell this by the 1 septate conidia formed on phialides branching from long stipes. According to the USDA Hypomyces site three species are know to grow on Auriculariales and of the three the Hypomyces aurantius anamorph matches best.
