jelly fungus

Description:

Clumps of white opaque jelly cups covered by translucent layer of jelly. Some were small and nodular and others were tinged pink.
The largest would have been about 7 mm wide.
Also on the branch were minute pink jelly buttons (Ascocoryne sp.)

Habitat:

Spotted on a damp moss covered tree trunk - rain forest with eucalyptus and southern beech trees.

Notes:

Not sure if these are a species on their own or an emerging form of Myxarium species of jellies. Needs more research for a correct ID.

Thanks for your help Saturniidae27 & for the web link. I've considered Exidia genus but couldn't find anything similar. The opaque/harder insides of the jellies are intriguing - they have a distinct concavity and an even covering of transparent jelly.
It could be the start of some known fruiting bodies...

This most likely could be Ductifera sucina, due to the type of environment it thrives in(wet bark, and moss). Ductifera sucina is also a native fungi to Victoria. This link might further help in fungi of Australia.
