Recognized by sight: Joshua did. I confirmed it (sight ID only) thru google images.
This is apparently and oddly enough an edible species of jelly fungus, used in Chinese dishes. I dunno if it’s delicious, but it is certainly spathulate!

As you can see this fungus almost always fruits in lines through cracks in the log. easy ID character, along with the typical orange Dacrymycetales color.

Is this Dacryopinax spathularia? I have only seen it once in the tropics but it looks familiar…
