all photos were of specimens on the same fallen tree. i am assuming they are all the same species.

I’m not convinced that the larger shelf-like specimen and the flatter grayish specimens are the same species. The white one reminds me of Trametes gibbosa. If it were Bjerkandera, it should have pores with at least a hint of brown or gray and bruise blackish when fresh, and age to a grey or brown color. The flatter ones looks like they could be deformed Bjerkandera to me, though.
Nice photos. With something this diverse, I like to provide some shots showing the whole log or parts of the log. It is also nice to wait a few weeks after the first set of photos and watch what happens. You can date the photos separately, then we can see how they have grown. A view of the top of the shelf would be good, too. By the way, I have got my eye on some very strange blobs growing on logs right now.
around that time i was seeing a load of those brackets, but that is the only case of those mounds I found. they did appear very similar to the brackets (but obviously different). I don’t know anything about kretzschmaria deusta, but the MO observations for it all seem to be rather flat, while these were definitely protruding.
