not sure

Is this wood in the crack of a path as it looks like paving with a twig in the crack between paving slabs.I would have said it was one of the Peziza Genus.

photo clarification

The branch was lying on the ground having been blown off an old bush, I think elderberry bush. I positioned the branch on a tarmac area for ease of taking photos!
Sorry if this has caused confusion and misleading appearance of photos.
Grateful for any further thoughts on ID.
