Can’t tell from the photo if they are serrate (saw toothed). If not this is likely H. ulmarius.

in your area. But Stamets’ lists this as P. ostreatus, based on growth on hardwoods. P. pulmonarius grows on conifers in the West (although I’ve only seen it once on that substrate).

Seems to be a good year for fungus. I am noticing more this year then most.
