Fungal growth in Hotbin

One of our Hotbin composters has grown some fungi since last week. The bin was returning to temperature (just reached 40C) after being rested during lockdown  when the café was closed. Kitchen waste (cooked and uncooked) has now been added with shredded paper.

On reflection it would have been a good idea to use one of the other bins and let the spores develop. Any identifications?
