Nathan, I agree with your findings as to it possibility being Grifola frondosa. I have found a reference that exhibits many of the same features and characteristics of my specimen grown in a similar habitat. See photo 2 on reference web page http://theforagerpress.com/fieldguide/grifola.htm.

Might be Grifola frondosa

I haven’t collected it enough to confidently recognize it through the mold and age, but the general structure reminds me of Grifola.

Clavulina cristata doubtful

This specimen looks old and moldy, but it’s too thick and chunky to be Clavulina cristata. Besides 2 spores per basidia, Clavulina cristata has numerous sharp points at the tip of the branches. Cristate means crested.
