I agree, black-staining polypores, for the first two photos. If you scratch them with your fingernail, the scratch will turn black in a few minutes. Found some last summer, someone on "Other Edibles" thread identified them for me. Youtube video showed how to trim them using just the outer fronds, and fry them. Delicious, similar to morels, I thought.
