Dry mushroom identification help

I have a large jar of dried mushrooms. Ingredients: Porcini 25%, Shitake 25%, Yellow boletes 25%, Oyster mushrooms 25%

I think the oyster mushrooms are on the left and the I think it's shitake on the right. Is that the yellow boletes at the bottom and porcini at the top?

Top right = shiitake
Bottom Right = Oyster
Top Left = Porcini
Bottom Left = Boletes

Hmm, I was pretty sure about the oyster mushrooms. They are sort of funnel shaped, which doesn't show very well in the photo.

Thanks for responding.

So everyone thinks the ones on the bottom right are the oyster mushrooms, even though the ones on the bottom left are funnel shaped?

I got out the magnifying glass. All but the very dark ones have gills. The dark ones have pores.

I found this: Phylloporus rhodoxanthus: The "Gilled Bolete" (MushroomExpert.Com)

Those pictures of boletes don't look like the ones I found by googling bolete pix. I imagine those could dry funnel shaped. But, don't oyster mushrooms look sort of like chanterelles? Those ones on the bottom left look like they were shaped like chanterelles when they were fresh.

It's all very confusing.
