Observation 7937: Agaricales sensu lato

These two were about as big as tennis balls cut in half. When I first found them right at the darkest section to the rear of the space under the log I wasnt quite sure what I was looking at. I shone my torch on them just in case they MOVED. I spoke to Clive Shirley about them and he thought they were too mature to be able to ID
I have seen similar photos to these in some of my reference material but not enough to let me say what it is. The area was VERY dark and wet and they were as far back under the log as was possible. Flash (fill) was used to get the image. The white spots were intreguing. I’m not sure if it another mould or normal colouring. It doesnt seem to me to be mould.
