  1. Not reishi. I think this is Ganoderma applanatum, common name artist's conk. Pores should bruise brown when scratched. https://www.first-nature.com/fungi/ganoderma-applanatum.php

    Is this a porcini mushroom?

    Not a porcini. I think it's Tylopilus plumbeoviolaceus and it is very bitter. http://www.mushroomexpert.com/tylopilus_plumbeoviolaceus.html

    is this hen of the woods?

    Not a hen. I think it's Sparassis crispa, a good edible. http://www.mushroomexpert.com/sparassis_spathulata.html

    Just to confirm

    I don't think it's hen of the woods. Most likely Bondarzewia berkeleyi; Berkeley's Polypore or Meripilus giganteus, black staining polypore.

  10. Hyanlinus distorts the mushroom so much that a positive ID is impossible. You'd be playing Russian roulette. https://www.connecticutwilderness.com/species/fungi/hypomyces-hyalinus/
