I have no idea what these are. On wood, sessile (no stipe), cap off-white, not quite fibrous. Gills are orange, and branching, with white spores.

Kinda weird…

Not like the others…

This observation seems very different from the other ones labelled as Pseudomerulius curtisii or Tapinella corrugata. Specifically the hymenophore looks much more like regular lamellae in this observation than in any of the others.

P. nidulans makes sense.

Amusingly, I confused C. crocophyllus w/nidulans back East; it’s those darn orange gills! Missed the reference to branching gills, and I am used to seeing these guys in their fabulously furry and stinky forms.

Not Crepidotus

It doesn’t have brown spores, and the gills are branching, like in a Hygrophoropsis. This is like a Paxillus/Hygrophoropsis type of ’shroom. Not a Crepidotus.
