Help identifying Beacon Fell fungi

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.

@Chris: Did you mean Tubaria dispersa? T. confragosa has a ring and much darker colours.

best regards,
Coming back to this one briefly. I must have had a blank moment - I meant Tubaria furfuracea. Though T. dispersa would, I agree, also be in the mix . . .
