But I am not familiar with these fungi from the Americas. Here where I live in Austria at elevations between 200-600 m above sea level this is a species called DISCOSIA STROBILINA, an ascomycete. But there are a heck of other similar pyrenomycetic fungi on cones around. You need special literature which is dispersed all around the globe. This is stuff for experts who just deal with pyrenomycetes.
I have been also seeing the small black spots on the cone scales each spring. It appears your photo also has them. Still have not had any luck identifing them.
