More likely younger speciemens

My guess is they are younger specimens based on color (and shape). Can you get back and see if they have changed?

Are these specimens somewhat old then?

Thanks for the help, guys.
It was nice to see them like this for the first time.

Pgrunow; Phaeolus schweinitzii perhaps

Looks like a P. schweinitzii to me. These run a gambit of colors depending on how old they are. They can be found on the tree or on the ground near the base of the tree. Usually Doug fir if I remember correctly.
