I hope this is Favolus tenuiculus.!!


To a lay person it looks like wild oyster mushrooms. Attaching a link so that the knowledgeable could come to a conclusion.


To me also this seems to be Favolus tenuiculus.


To confirm whether it is Favolus or not we need to see the underside. In these pics in a few of the fruiting bodies I can see gills. I also feel its shape is similar to Pleurotus. May be it is some sp. of Pleurotus (oyster mushroom).


Pleurotus ?


Or Crepidotus species (?) as per

Seems white spored.
If it is then not Crepidotus for sure.
