Author's notes

Not sure if this is another case of Pleurotus sp. The cap seems to be more curved/cupped.

I suspect this is a Conchomyces sp. They look similar to the Pleurotus spp. however the conchomyces is more bell-shaped as you've noted. I've put this up as a suggestion incase there is someone out there that has a better understanding of this genus. If not I'll confirm it later.
