Description:

Two groups of fungus within a metre of each other one set attached to the stump of a tree the other to, possibly, its roots. Sorry, could not identify the stump.
The largest fungus was about 10cm across. The stipe was either very short or within the gap between then wood and bark of the stump.
Not able to identify from my Collins guide but I did linger over the oysters and their allies but none seemed to fit.
Any suggestions?

Identifications

Caution: Do NOT use iSpot to identify fungi to eat!

Some fungi are very poisonous so a mistaken ID could have serious consequences.

Oyster

Thank you for you suggestion. I am pleased that I got somewhere near even though I was not confident enough to offer it as an id.
