Common fungal beauties, Discovery Park

I just bought "Mushrooms of the Pacific Northwest" by Steve Trudell and Joe Ammirati, and I've been enjoying it. Lovely pictures, solid descriptions, easy navigation -- it has all you need in a field guide, almost. (I'd like an English index.) So even though, the weather has been unsuitably sunny, I went looking for mushrooms.

I found these under a rotting log. I think they are Lentinus strigosus. Here's what they look like from the top.

Calocera cornea, all in a row.

Parasola plicatilis.
