What is your basis for claiming it can’t possibly be Trametes, Danny? Please state specific field characters evident in this observation that, in your opinion, combine to rule out Trametes.

What is your basis for claiming it can’t possibly be in Polyporaceae? It’s very likely to be Trametes, which according to Wikipedia is in Polyporaceae.
