Not sure of this one growing out of an Oak stump, first thought was a Mazegill, but the gills are too straight.
Any ideas?20200408_085546.jpg20200408_085550.jpg

Interesting, not seen it myself. However looking through the books it does seem to be closest to oak mazegill or otherwise blushing bracket potentially.

Here's a few different ones (last 2 pics are the same thing - though I'm not even sure it's even a fungus ?!!!).

Schizophyllum commune (split gill fungus) would be my suggestion for the last two.

 

Cauliflower fungus (sparassis crispa) and turkey tail for the other two

cheers

I think the first image are different stages of the slime mould Fuligo septica.

A Myxo was my first thought as well but on zooming in the texture is much more like sparassis. I've never seen dogs vomit with that texture before. The area to the right certainly makes it look a developing slime mould but i wondered if that was the mushroom degrading of being attacked by slugs/other fungus.

I've never seen sparassis in the flesh myself so just speculating

cheers

It does look a bit like Sparassis although Fuligo (and its closely associated myxos) can look like this and many other forms as they are quite variable.

It looks like a very young Chicken of the Woods, Laetiporus sulphureus. I would normally expect it to be a bit more yellow although you do see them flushed pink like that. Keep an eye on it and see how it develops.

Agreed it looks like chicken of... but possibly unusually shaped phellinus pomaceus which is more common on plum.
