your collection shows the typical brownish hues in the hymenium that are typical for Mollisia lividofusca, and I'd bet a lot that you have this species in your foto. It is very common on rather hard wood in somewhat dry conditions. If you make a section through the apothecium, you usually find that the subhymenium is brownish coloured - a unique feature among all Mollisia species as far as I know up to now.

best regards,
Andreas
Many thanks Andreas for your comments and advice, I did not collect a sample but will do so next time I go to what is my local wood.

Kind regards

John
