Removed possible multiple observation

Removed the image of the smaller mushroom, to simplify the observation.

Added more images of the larger ones, which are (unfortunately) not in very good condition.

multiple species?

Both photographs are of the same hardwood stump. Both caps show the same ‘speckled’ appearance, leading me to suppose they came from a single mycelium. But maybe not…

Indeed, the spore print, taken from one of the larger caps, is extremely pale, a very light brown color.

Multiple species in observation is a poor fit for MO’s format. The first certainly looks likely for Lentinula sp. Is the spore print very pale? I would love to learn what the second one is; it’s pretty.
