Are these Chaetocalathus craterellus?

Please try to include photos to show all parts of the fungus, eg top, stem, and gills.
Note any smells, and associated trees or plants (eg oak, birch). A spore print can be very useful.

Micro fungi, cup-shaped but seemingly with gills in mixed deciduous wood. Again search through field guides/web proving not very fruitful. Thought about stemless discomycete. As you can see I have no real idea. Chaetocalathus craterellus is just my best guess. Advice greatly appreciated, again! Thank you, Hugh

Hello,

this one needs microscopy. Most likely a crepidotus species, possibly Clitopilus hobsonii. I don't think that there are alternatives to this two possibilities.

best regards,
Andreas
