Is likely to occur exclusively in N. America. I wish I Knew which European Gymnopilus to propose! I need to learn Latin in order to read about European species.

Perhaps you could collect this one? It may make its way beneath a microscope at some point.

I’m not sure

what tree was this, but definetely not a conifer. I use to find these on Eucalyptus, possibly this is one. Unfortunately I lost much better photos of them between my 2 Gb mushroom photos.

Ventricosus is an american species.

I am poorly informed. If the substrate is coniferous, I would compare Gymnopilus ventricosus.

it seems that it is being attacked by some fungi.

These were old specimens, except the ones on last photo.

I haven’t seen that small mushroom until you catch my attention to it, trained eyes of yours!

I don’t know which other gymnopilus could it be, have you something in mind?

Did you

Use a fire extinguisher on the one in the back?

The margin is adorned with veil remnants and the ring zone seems to be entirely fibrillose as opposed to having a membranous element. I think this is another Gymnopilus.

Did you observe any green staining on the primordia?

Also, is that little mushroom in the middle of the first picture part of this cluster?
