ID help please

Found on a dead tree, overlapping clusters reminded me of oysters. Orange gills and a tan/faded white cap. Pleasant smell when cut off tree. Spore print creamy white with a slight pinkish hue.

Not sulfur shelf (gills, not pores)
Mock oyster maybe but the book says they smell bad.
Jack o lantern??

Thanks for your help.

PS they are smelling bad this morning. Verified hairy cap surface under a microscope.

Mock orange oysters.

Definitely mock orange oysters. The pleasant smell when fresh threw me off, but otherwise they key out properly.

My Audubon guide says it is not poisonous, but it tastes as bad as it smells.
