Would this be considered saprophytic? I was going to ask if there were better photos of the gills to be able to see this a little better. 

Yes, sapro

Weird to look at, very sharp and prominent, almost looks like its just been painted on. Smart though.

Found a few bits over the last couple of days.. first two are growing from an old beech log, next three are on an old spruce stump, two from a multistem cherry, a very small lilac stem with dusty little ring around the stem and sumfink on the chip pile, I don't know if there is anything to be excited about but some positive id would be great! 20190101_110336.jpeg20190101_110330.jpeg20190101_113010.jpeg20190101_113025.jpeg20190101_113038.jpeg20190101_125300.jpeg20190101_125319.jpeg20190101_130631.jpeg20190101_130613.jpeg20181229_091823.jpeg20181229_091811.jpeg

Think you're looking at 

Trametes versicolor 

Phaeolus schweinitzii on the stump

Ganoderma sp on the cherry

Brefeldia maxima on the twig

and something like Otidea onotica on the mulch
