These are most likely Oyster Mushrooms (Pleurotus Ostreatus)

Sure, that makes sense. I will try and do that in future. Thank you for your helpful comments.

Well 140+ in 3 weeks is pretty good. You make a good team. :)
Oh another minor thing btw.. the habitat section is really intended for specific local conditions rather than general.... eg. this one might be 'attached to the base of a kauri tree in a local national park' Good stuff.

Sure, will try too, most of these photos I have taken previously, so can't easily go back to where they were taken. So sorry about that. I just happen to love nature, animals... so when ever I see anything in my travels I take photos of them. If it was frogs or geckos I probably would have done. I never knew this website existed till 3 weeks ago!

Hi twolittletoddies... you are building a good collection of interesting things. When you do fungi could one of you please remember to snap the under sides as well. That view is often more important than the top for identification. Thanks!!
