    Found on a tree trunk at Imperial Landing (former Britannia Shipyard) in Richmond.
    Seems like 3 different ones. Size range from 4 to 8 cm.

    Greetings David - I hope your fall has gone well!

    The first two look like aged oysters, not sure which kind ... but the staining suggests age rather than a different spore deposit colour.

    The third one has scales that are more Pholiota-like, but the overall colouring is more Gymnopilus-like. Was it alone or were there clusters? Spore deposit colour evidence is hard to assess in photos sometimes.

    The color of the third reminds me a Flammulina velutipes. Or its lookalike, Kuehneromyces mutabilis.
