Flaky skin

Nice finds. Clone the oysters - it seems a nice strain.
The second one is a Scleroderma sp. - not edible or even poisonous according to some sources. The spores are produced inside like with the puff balls.
I don't know about the 3rd one. You can try to ID it with the  Key to polypores  :wink:
