Think you're looking at 

Trametes versicolor 

Phaeolus schweinitzii on the stump

Ganoderma sp on the cherry

Ceratiomyxa fruticulosa on the twig

and something like Otidea onotica on the mulch

 

Thank you! I've read a good few of your posts over the years, I like the balance of knowledge and humour. About time I started learning what I'm looking at, thanks again for the quick response.

I did not quote what these fungi were. I believe the first and second picture are coriolus  versicolor (many zoned polypore)

 3rd picture is Scleroderma of some sort I believe (could be something entirely different). Last one maybe Lactarius of some sort.

Yep oak, been sitting about 4 years I think.

thought so.

 

I bought the used but very good condition Michael Jordan Encyclopedia of Fungi. Very useful book. 1000's of fungi to study. Thanks for the recommendation.

I stand corrected by the way. foraging and foraying are both very different words. The latter being the one I meant to use in my post. Foraging is the act of looking for fungi to eat. I was foraying; as in looking for fungi for observation and study.

This on the base of a rotting section of ash. I am guessing from looking at pictures that it might be Postia subcaesia. But it may be something completely different. 

 

Any ideas?

Could it be kretzschmaria

I was wondering about that, though this is what I would call kretzshmaria, on an old beech stump.

Saw this fungus on a beech today, never seen it before though. Also had old merip around the base and ganoderma too!
