Agree with RandyL on being a Ganoderma spp. Not familar with ones outside the USA though.

Many of the Ganoderma are very similar - but the coloring and the hardwood preference makes me lean towards lucidum as well.

Beautiful ones there, perfect time to harvest for teas/extracts!

I did some looking to see if i could find a photo of the fruit body, but it looks like the black spots on the wings is the fungus!

Bugs have to be careful with Cordyceps and Entomophaga trying to control their brains!

That's why its the horse mushroom, it's as big as a horse!

I don't think it is a Termitomyces spp. as KarenSaxton suggested.

Some aspects of this remind me of galerina species mushrooms. The brown cap and spore print, somewhat hygrophanous - possible it was growing from buried wood? Its not perfect but I wouldn't risk eating!

Can't really even tell what I'm looking at here. Almost just looks like a cross-section of a stick...

Please take more pictures of this at various angles!

I suggested species for two of them. The yellow one is an Amanita species. The brown one is some kind of bolete. The little brown ones look like like some kind of Galerina?
