Are these Dead Man's Fingers or more Coal Fungus (or are they the same?)
Nearly. Classification pretty darned similar till you get down to the genus level.
One alias of coal fungus (Daldinia concentrica) is 'King Alfred's cake'. Ha!
Latin name = Xylaria (refers to growing on wood) polymorpha (means "many forms")
Common name = Dead Man's Fingers
Coal's Fungus is a different fungus.
Latin name = Daldinia concentrica
