Orchids

I came across these orchids this morning and although they look different to each other, they are probably the same species as they were pretty close to each other. Could someone please ID them ? Many thanks.

Orchis conica

Are both of these Orchis conica, even though one is much "whiter" than the other.
Photographed at Penbroke this morning, growing within a few yards of each other.

No I have not checked genus Phellinus, but will do so, and yes it was growing on a Tamarix, pretty high up in fact and could not photograph it from above, but could see that it was a dark brown.
