Looks more like Lycogala terrestre to me.

parad1se, thanks for the suggestion. I hadn't considered this - as a Slime mould it's not in Phillips.

After looking at various pictures of both species on the web I certainly can't rule this out but I also still can't rule out N.cinnabarina. Is anyone else able rule out one or the other?

(unfortunately this is the only picture I have)
