was Lycolgala, but I can see why Fenwickfield suggests Hypoxylon fragiforme. Can someone point out distinguishing features please?
To be honest I'm really not sure. I think when young Hypoxylon fragiforme can look pink like this but from from what I've seen at this stage it is small and appears to be bursting out of less well rotted wood than that in the above photo. When older it darkens and has a bumpy surface which doesn't appear to be the case here. I would go for Lycogala terrestre going on the good pink colour smooth surface and way the aethalia sometimes cluster together.

Slime moulds often change their appearance very quickly, and daily monitoring can help a lot with identification.
In this case it's unclear how much time had elapsed between the taking of these two photos, but I'd agree with dan_wrench for the reasons he gives. Photos of the specimen taken on successive days would probably settle the matter.
