If these are Pleurocybella porrigens, you should be aware that this species has been connected to some fatal poisonings of people with kidney disease.

Dave, Im not to sure about the wood,.. I have yet to figure out how to distinguish them, especially the decaying ones… I posted a new pic with a better view of the wood it was growing on.

Jay, do you know the type of wood…

on which these were growing? If coniferous, then I’d consider Pleurocybella porrigens, “Angel Wings.”
