  1. ‘If’ it’s Gymnopus junonius, it’s is a saprotroph that will be taking its sustenance within dysfunctional areas of the damaged wood volumes (probably the roots) It will be a slow process of degradation. If the tree is in decline due to more than the root damage (other disease/dysfunction) the fungi will be part of the succession of the ongoing decline.
  2. Difficult to be sure when the specimens are starting to over mature. Easier when they are in early development. host (although found associating with a wide range of broadleaves) Cap colour (although a little faded here) No cap scales (although they may have washed off) Gill colour Gills are crowded Gills possibly adnate remnant ring on stipe and a hunch 😁
  3. A slice of the bracket to show flesh and tube colour would help with identification, also an idea of spore colour is useful. Worth considering Rigidoporus ulmarius and Perenniporia fraxinea
  4. Maybe worth considering Gymnopilus junonius
  5. Brown flesh, white pore layer. Ganoderma species, possibly Ganoderma adspersum/australe
  6. Not its typical form, but worth considering White saddle (Helvella crispa) usually looks like this....
  7. Hard to be sure without clearer id features but Macrolepiota procera has brown scales on the stem which these don’t appear to have so worth considering one of the shaggy parasols like Chlorophylum rhacodes
  8. Probably Golden scaly cap (Pholiota aurivella) but may also be its close relative Pholiota adiposa.

  10. @slack ma girdle Pluteus aurantiorugosus Rhodotus palmatus
  11. Likely to be the Flame Shield (Pluteus aurantiorugosus) Pluteus aurantiorugosus, Flame Shield mushroom WWW.FIRST-NATURE.COM
