Recognized by sight: I’m pretty sure those are apothecia, not perithecia with huge ostioles. So — black cups = Pezizomycete of some sort?

Now that I’ve seen a few more, I’d buy Phylacia.

this looks abundant enough and carbonaceous enough to be a Phylacia. It’s even got that “circum-apical dehiscience” (?*) going on to expose the spore mass of broken down asci.

Possible. But I have never seen these growing on a “standing tree”
