images showing the crust-like substrate upon which these were found. It is very thin and flexes very little before breaking. Perhaps Trichaptum or Stereum substrate, or my imagination.

Thanks Dan

I still have these, and after removing some material from their bases, they appear to be fruiting from a crust fungi. Will try to obtain decent images of the actual substrate asap.

I would guess something like Radulodon instead.

The larger fungi appear to be Tremellodendron pallidum, false coral. You may want to split this observation into two.

Don’t you think that images 1,6,and 7 are the same species, and images 2-5 are the same? Two-five were basically the same group taken from slightly different angles.
I do understand that different fungi can inhabit the same substrate.
