All are from central Alabama

The first of these have been at the base of a dead Post Oak for long before it was dead. Some sort of polypore, the underside is the same yellow/white color as the margin. The darker areas are glutinous, somewhat transparent on the smaller ones. Possibly red belted poly?
I'll try for a print tonight, these weren't my immediate concern, just thought I'd share

The next item is about 10" across, ash white sporeprint, growing on a rotting sweetgum stump for the second time (last winter I saw one decayed in this same spot... had no idea what it was then, but now~)
Pores. Velvety texture, excreting resin colored droplets (resinous polypore/Isch/res??)

The last picture was taken 2 days ago... the previous yesterday... but then... what... what do I see directly on the other side of this same stump? How could I have missed these yesterday?

Sporeprint... everywhere, as you can see...
Prominent veil
gills adnate, fairly well spaced, unequal

My first thought is Honeys, but the taste is bitter (spores?) Smell wonderful... any thoughts?

Nice stuff.

Your first ones look like Ganoderma lucidum (Reishi) to me. The very red one in the second photo looks almost like it's been varnished. That's one of the key features to look for.

I'm not very good at polypores, but you might also consider Tyromyces for that big white one. It's certainly weird.

The clustered mushrooms are indeed Honey Mushrooms. They are edible, if you cook them thoroughly. If you decide to try them, try only a very small amount the first time and wait overnight. Some people get ill after eating them, and eating only a small amount will keep you from getting too sick. If you don't have any problems overnight, enjoy them.

Happy mushrooming!

Happy mushrooming!
