Pretty sure those are not Pheasant’s Backs, but not sure what they are.  I an't eat nuten in the woods this time of year. 🤪

I agree that those are not pheasant backs and also that if you don't know your mushrooms you shouldn't be eating them. This time of year isn't any different from any other in that respect.

About a foot across, growing on a half dead box elder in a wooded area near my house.  Any guesses?

Smalliehunter is spot on. You are good Del, might be a little corkey so far down south. But worth a shot. Have a half dozen or so stressed box elder go to spots and have been eating well.

It's been a loooooooooong time since I've checked in here. Good to see y'all are still talking mushrooms. :)

 

The first photos are almost certainly pholiota of some sort. They'll have gills and a funky smell.  The other "shelf" ones are definitely pheasantbacks, which don't have gills and have an odor that's close to a watermelon rind.

I think you're right -- probably the cincinnatus variety (which I think is the best tasting one).  

 

That color is orange, right? It looks a little pink to me, and there are other pored shelf-like mushrooms that grow from the ground.
