These were a striking group of fungi when I came upon them. There were two groups about the same age in maturity. I made a note to return in about a week to re-photograph them, which I did. They were actually growing up the trunk of the tree or more correctly growing out from the tree trunk and down to ground level. I am still trying to get a reference that does them justice. I also have other images to add when I get to them.

The last three images were taken about a week later than the first set of images.
You probably feel like shooting the messenger!! I hope I can display your patience in the future.
This is just a guess given what you got. Clustered and on wood, can be a number of other things, Hypholoma, Flammulina, Gymnopus, Gymnopilus, Psathyrella, Mycena, and probably a few others that I am missing. But in this size, Hypholoma would have dark gills; Gymnopilus would have brown to orange brown gills; Gymnopus is slighter, thinner; Flammulina is more orange and viscid; so this kinda leaves Armillaria as a guess. There are a number of Armillaria, and they all should have a veil really, which these don’t, but in some the veil goes away quick, esp. in the rain.
So, it is just a guess, because it kinda looks like that.
Thanks Douglas, My references do not show anything like the images.
