I saw this fungi on a decomposing log at Carkeek Park. It is black and dark gray. It resembles a fungus we saw on a campus fungi tour (Genus Hypoxylon) but I am definitely not certain of this. Any suggestions are welcome!

I saw this log on the ground near the stream. It is absolutely covered in various lichens and fungi! I believe I see some parmelia sulcata in there, as well as evernia prunastri.
