Forget my suggestion. I thought they looked a bit tiny too, but the habitat is alright. And damn – i found this:-)

Do you happen to have a photo of those pink Alloclavaria..? I assume that you took pictures of them.

Not unreasonable

During a conference of the Bavarian Mycological Society in the Bavarian Forest Nationalpark a few years ago we found a whole field of A. purpurea, including an isolated island with completely pink fruiting bodies. A microscopic study revealed that all collections were A. purpurea. The determination was easy: The decisive factor was the presence of setae because the species is part of the Hymenochaetales.

is this is pink enough to be Clavaria rosea?

for Alloclavaria purpurea. Check Clavaria incarnata (no distinct cystidia, but distinct stem (about 1 cm), loop-like clamps at the basidia, broader spores).
