It’s hard to find good online photos of this, but the frayed edges, color and habit are a match to the material that I could find.

Thelephora relative?

Not a Sparassis with the fringed margin and nine of them growing so close.
Reminds me of something in the Thelephoraceae.
Need to scope a sample of this odd ball.

Does this look like Sparassis spathulata?

Does this look like Sparassis spathulata? Not that I know much about Sparassis…
I think there is very few species of Sparassis in the world in any case.

Also there is some species of Tremellodendropsis to consider, but I think those are usually small.
