wow, that’s great! i love this site! thank you!!
it could be Nectria cinnabarina. If so, these are the best photos I’ve seen of this inconspicious stage. Better known is the conidial stage, the pink warts.
it’s a clustered saprobic mildly parasitic ascomycete, that apparently, when it’s ready to breed, bursts out of the wood to form bundles of cups.
you can google for nice photos of its flask-shaped perithecia. I did…
