Just a couple things I found out walking today. I am going back in a couple days to check out these pins and maybe take a print.

Cool shrooms. Any idea what they are? The second to last picture looks like a carcas.

The first three I am hoping for Gyms. But probably not. #4 is a ground star, #5 Yellow coral fungus, #6 & 7 some type of polypors I am not familiar with, and #8 is a tree ear I believe.

Hey there! Hope you don't mind Llama but I found this in the backyard on the firewood. Any idea what it is?

The first three I am hoping for Gyms.

Any way to tell for sure llama? I know Gyms grow in my area but I can never make a positive identification.

the coral is most likely ramaria abietina or ramaria stricta. the earth star is astrius hygrometricus. the ground "polypore" is a toughie...not sure. look at phaeolus schweinitzii or even ganorderma ....although i am am positive that it is not laetiporus sulphureus< chicken of the woods>.
the jelly is Auricularia auricula or tremella mesenterica both are common in indiana. the small mushrooms in the first pics is <if it is growing on wood> probably hypholoma sublateritum or hypholoma capnoides <brick caps or brick tops>. both are edible but hypholoma fasciculare <sulfur tuft> is poisonous so make sure you know what you have. brick tops are pretty good and i pick and enjoy when i find them. usually suphur tuft comes up in clumps of fruiting bodies that look connected at the bases...and they are definitly more slender and tall than their edible allies in this complex.

Man gyms would be a nice find. I've been looking for a while. I know that they are here but I can't find the little bastids. They grow all over N. America.
