This doesn't look right for D

This doesn't look right for D mollis but I am not sure what it might be. Keep and eye on it and see how it develops.

If no joy

I can get another sample if there is no ID, have you any idea even to point me in a better direction. I really thought it was this

My first thought when I saw

My first thought when I saw it was Heterobasidion but that only grows on conifer so it cannot be that. When I have found Datronia before it has never taken on the shape of your find but always been a relatively flat layer on the wood. I was told D mollis easily peels of the substrate but all I can suggest is to leave it to develop.
