No specimen available

This is related to observation http://www.ispot.org.uk/node/79848 on iSpot where there are further details and more images. Basically several experts have looked at the images and real material and not come up with an ID. The fungi occurred in the same place again this year (2011) but I missed it in good condition.
I was wondering if anyone else had seen something similar even if there is no ID.

The hymenophore seems to at least be darkening…

Certainly not Chalciporus piperatus

The actual material has been examined by a number of experts including microscopically and it is certainly not Chalciporus piperatus. Unfortunately no one was able to come up with an identification because the red material did not have enough structure to give any clues.

No bruising

No bruising, the pores were covered in this red material that appeared to be another species of something possibly a fungus. See the further photos and details on the ispot website.

What color did the pores bruise, if any?
