Can anyone ID this mushroom/fungus

I really am praying that it's not Honey fungus (Armillaria mellea)  :s

    It's growing on the dead ivy vine that was covering a tree at the top of the garden, until a few years ago when my husband stripped it.  I really am hoping it's not terrible news as there are over 100 trees nearby with TPOs on them, not to mention the others in my garden.

    Much more like a pleurotis...relax.  Honey fungus has a stem and a cap, not gills running down the stem.

    @helix thank you so much, I'd posted the pics on FB fungus / mushroom sites and had conflicting IDs, Oyster Mushroom variety and Honey Fungus :) I've done rather a lot of reading up and came to the conclusion Oyster, however always doubt myself  :D
