Resupinate fungi on pine

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.

Resupinate fungi on pine

Seen on 29th March on a fallen pine branch on heathland in west Suffolk. Two fruitbodies, each about 5cm in diameter - 2 photos from the first, 1 from the second (presumably same species). Any suggestions most welcome
