Interesting Fungi

While out on Tuesday at the grasslands I came across several nice specimens of fungi!

This one is a mystery to me. I suspect it might be some sort of earthstar, but that is only a guess.
As you can see it was a fairly good size. I have found them at my house too. If you know what it is let me know please.
A very wrinkly looking guy.
I thought for sure the above mushroom was going to be a shelf fungus. It certainly fooled me as you can see here.
Clinging to the side of a bank the spiky Lycoperdon americanum puffball!

Turning the corner in the ravine a fallen tree had a Ganoderma fungus. Additionally a few small shelf fungus in white below the Ganoderma.
Another view!
A fungus that was growing teeth. It was only about one inch across.
My last fungus of the day, a Jack-O-Lantern Mushroom (Omphalotus)!
Since there was only one I could not bear to take a piece home to look for the glow.

Perhaps more will sprout up after today’s damp day?? Fingers crossed.
