I dont know anything about tree ID. Are you sure these are douglas fir cones? That would help me look for characteristics They are a cup fungus, with a stipe, which is important. Great picture to work with though.

I’ve never come across these before. Are they relative to a bladder cup of sorts? If ascomycota would they be possibly in the Plectania or Sarcosoma maybe? Let me know- pretty abundant around this spot today and really interesting to find >.<
