Those should be changed, at least those for which familial affinity is known and agreed upon. I’d do it myself, if I weren’t commenting from my phone on the way to work :)

I agree that this observation and the one from New Zealand look completely different. The fungi observed by myself have grown on wood, but the ones in NZ have grown on ground. I have chosen the name Stereopsis hiscens because my pictures are almost identical to the ones depicted in “Fungi of Ecuador” SWAMPE 58 on page 9 of 27 of the cited pdf document. So far only a working title. I have no literature to date.

Regarding picture 3 these seem to be telephodes. I assume this is another example of a rhizoid forming fungus from the neotropics. See also http://mushroomobserver.org/158663?q=1pCKu
