The fruitbodies are obviously dessicated, perhaps also damaged by frost so it is difficult to know what they originally looked like.

What is the fungus? What characters differentiate it from N. cinnabarina?
Nectria cinnabarina s.s.
Distribution: Europe (Austria, Denmark, France, Germany, Ireland,
Netherlands, Poland, Sweden, Ukraine, UK) and North America
Habitat: On dead woody substrata including Acer campestre, A.
platanoides, A. pseudoplatanus, A. saccharum, Acer sp., Aesculus
sp., Celastris scandens, Fagus sp., Gleditsia sp., Populus tremula,
Sorbus aria, Spiraea trilobata, Tilia sp., and Ulmus × hollandica.
a Florida record from the USDA Fungus Host Database indicates N. cinnabarina is associated with black cherry in the form of dieback", meaning that perithecia were probably not observed or studied, but that some plant damage attributed to that species was evident. this could be some warping/curling/mutation of wood/leaves/stems. chances are the name was misapplied, as has often and long been the case with N. cinnabarina.
Thanks for asking – does substrate inform identification?
