Recognized by sight: It would help to know the type of tree. Cottonwood or Prunus would fit with this species. The spores seem to be anonymous and don’t fit with anything I ran across.
Used references: Lindsey, J. Page and R. L. Gilbertson. 1977. A New Steccherinum (Aphyllophorales, Steccherinaceae) on Quaking Aspen. Mycologia 69(1): 193-197.
Based on microscopic features: Good match on the shape of the pseudocystidia.
