1. Ganoderma tsugae: looks just like lucidum but this is NH and it was growing on hemlock: these and others I have collected this season are being dried for further study the print is brown (last shot)
couple of chants
corals are tough but it may be close to ramaria botrytis
amanita fulva maybe?
the next two were growing out of the same stump i don't know what they are:
Your Amanita frostiana is most likely not that - it is much more likely to be A. flavoconia, a species *very* commonly mistaken for A. frostiana. According to Ros Tulloss, the mistakes extend to having some specimens of A. flavoconia actually mixed in with the type collection for the species A. frostiana.
With the possible Amanita fulva, we need to see the base of the stem and the volva. From what you show they are probably in the A. vaginata group of species.
Ramarias are a major bitch to identify, even with a microscope. Most of the time most people just stop at genus and don't worry about which species.
Your mystery mushrooms at the bottom with the brown spore prints are likely to be Psathyrellas. Psathyrella is a large genus with a lot of obscure species that are difficult to identify.
