Found the strangest green mushrooms on a hike with my boyfriend. The texture was spongy. They were located in the woods on a fallen pine. I didnt get a spore print.

The shape and wrinkled hymenium (fertile under-surface) remind me of genus Thelephora. But, the only such species that grows on wood is T. cuticularis, and the fruit bodies seen here don't look like this species. So, I think these are some sort of polypore, but nothing comes immediately to mind. 

If I get a better idea, I'll suggest it. For now... I'm stumped by this one!

It could be algae that give it that green color.

I frequently find what seems to be algae (I figured bacteria growth at first) growing on old hard-bodied fungi like these.
