I don’t know the genus well, but they have yellow to red colours and tiny hairs (pale or dark) on the outside of the cup. Pulvinula is another possibility.

Btw, the pictures don’t show the size of these..

It was sessile…

And growing in conifer duff on a wet hillside trail. Sorry for the lack of info, this trip was troublesome in many ways and not ideal for mushroom photography or collecting!

Any photos of the backside? Does it have a stalk or is it sessile?
It resembles an Anthracobia, but it grows on burnt ground.

Could this be Discina?
