Mystery fungus, Nottinghamshire

Hi all, I'm a bit stuck where to start with this fungus. Found on a rotting log (species unknown) among moss. Only two fruit bodies, at opposite ends of log. Clumber Park, Nottinghamshire - parkland with a mix of mature native and non-native trees.

Didn't take one for microscopy, so not really expecting to narrow it down past suggestions of possibility!

Sorry for the bump... just checking there are no suggestions before I give it up as a bad job!

Hello,

looks quite interesting, but I have not the slightest idea not even of the genus or family - which is not too often the case.

best regards,
Andreas
