First, the orange mushroom on the right is being observation
I think that the proposed name Irene is good, and I invite her to put it on my observation. Thank you in advance.
I add pictures that I had planned to set aside, but will help to clarify the name.
I note that I can not find any documentation on fungi Polynesia ….. Except on my observations??
And sorry for my English student.

reminds a lot of Auricularia mesenterica. I have no idea if that’s what you find on Tahiti…

Appears to be two separate fungi, GALLA.

Tannish fungi on the right appears to be Laetiporus or similar fungus. The black shelf fungus seems to be younger, but need more details for identification. Especially need a photo of the underside of the fungus.
