I’d say these are definitely Crepidotus

Phyllotopsis nidulans is a fleshier fungus, usually with an unpleasant odor. It has tomentum on the cap which is white. Your photo looks very much like a Crepidotus.


Well -

Here’s another one from down the same log. Don’t know, I’ve seen plenty of C. crocophyllus, and they didn’t seem to be those. Don’t know what to say, I thought they were Phyllotopsis, still do…

Did you smell these?

the brown scaly tufts and small size look a lot more like Crepidotus
