Was the fungus dry when you found it? Then it will be useless to study it. Or how were weather conditions?
Anyway just put it to the others in the box.

is much more difficult to ID, it seems a naked twisted wood root, beautiful in fact, I’m going to add the photo. The crust is yellowish.

is Hyphodontia in broad sense. Another guess could be Crustomyces subabruptus. Did you keep it then you can send it to me with name of the host.
