Observation 55217: Agaricales sensu lato

This group of specimens were found growing on a living tree. They were growing from between the gaps in the bark. They are also represented in varying stages of growth. It was most interesting to see the delicate arrangement around the perimeter of the larger cap. The caps varied in size from barely 1mm to the largest at about 5mm.
In the third image some new specimens are visible, and the growth around the stem of the lower fungi is quite significant. I have not been able to identify this species.

With the hairy margin and what looks like pink serrated gills I wonder if this could be a Lentinula (or something similar)
