Of course it’s not possible to definitively ID from photos and I’m not sure but I think you may have a mixed collection here but the last three photos look like they could be Pleurotus populinus. It occurs on Populus spp. like aspen and poplar. Kuo, M. (2006, August). Pleurotus populinus: The aspen oyster.
