So we have here a sessile polypore with green to green-gray pores. And the answer is …

I can’t find an answer.

Look at the second photo on huge or full size. The pores were similar to those of Lenzites elegans. The fruitings were 2 inches or so broad and fairly thick.

These appear/look small and fairly thin.

If so, could easily be Stereum. I cannot see anything in the photos which would give me a definate reference for the size/thicknss, though. Suggestions, Walt?
