Recognized by sight: At least one of these is a Hymenochaete. In the top picture 37154 the piece on top is definitely Hymenochaete, with that rusty context that will turn black in KOH. I’m not sure the fungus under it is the same thing. If not, I don’t know what it is and it may be the same as the one in the link you provided
