Recognized by sight: From the orangish color of the pores, this looks like Gloeoporus. It’s closely related to Phlebia tremellosa. The fertile surface actually goes over the top of the pore dissepiments (separators; walls), differntiating this from other true polypores.

I just put this one up there… I got the name off the American mushrooms site, which seemed ok for upstate New York species:

Mostly it is kinda a guess from the photos there, I need to do better. But it seems like these are thin polypores with off-white tops, and orange-brown pores under. The pores surface here is fragile and thin, touching it would collapse the pores to a smooth surface, and I needed close-up shots of the surface to record the pores, but they are there. If you didn’t look carefully you would think it was a Stereum.

what are the defining characteristics, doug?
