Early beef steak, wood ear, and false oysters

The first is of an early beef steak I found on my trip to the north east side of the state about a week ago. Its in the palm of my glove - grip dots on the palm give you some reference in size. The second is what I believe to be a wood ear. The last two of false oyster? Thanks!

It wasn't growing on wood (visibile that is). It looked like fresh growth rather than something over wintered. I've found MUCH larger version of the same, or so I presume, in the same area that look just like beefsteaks in years past. It was in the middle of a path covered in pineneedles in a fairly sunny location. It was very young so it very well could be G. infula. On your second suggestion I think you're right on.
