Back sooner. The first picture at the top has all of the above characteristics you mention

I am not an expert in this, but just looking at other photos on MO suggest:

the lack of a leathery or coherent fruit body with some thickness,
the lack of a prominent white margin, (I do see a tiny one)
The lack of any shelf,

Of course, none of these are absolutes and one could provide evidence for their existence. On the other hand, what characteristics make you think that it is Hymenochaete?
