I do not understand the language that is on this page I paste. But I think that is very similar Daedalea confragosa

They remind me of the oyster mushrooms that grew in the woods behind my childhood home. Genus Pleurotus?

Me too I have already seen something similar. These fungi have kinds of blue-purple lines? I know their names, but I find them very interesting :))
