“We are discussing only the four mushrooms pictured in the last image submitted. The top image is more size and location in the cavity. The second is for bark. I could not identify the type of log so I thought that someone who could would find that helpful. All the information submitted is for the mushrooms pictured in the last image.”

It took me a minute to understand, as well(!) Larry, it will help in the future if you choose a better photo for the “thumbnail”. Also, it would be helpful if you included the above information in the notes for either the images or the observation. You can do all of this in the “Edit Observation” form (or directly from the “Create Observation” page the first time through): the check the checkbox to the left of the images you want to be first, and look for the “notes” fields to the right of the images.

Like Matt, I too immediately assumed you were talking about the tiny yellow mushrooms in the first photo. I’ll remove the “Mixed collection” and “Duplicate” names (and remove the duplicate observation).

your picture with the two cameras has a fungi that is too small to tell. However the second picture is more than likely Ganoderma meagloma. You will need to separate these out and probably show us the photo you took of the yellow/orange fungus in the upper picture. Pictures 3-5 looke like galerina autumnalis.
