Overholts maintains that a resupinate fungus which attempts to form a pileus is classified as a polypore.
How about Datronia mollis?

are too big and roundish and lack the schizoporoid, teeth-like appearance. Color change upon bruising is not conform with Schizopora. Overall gestalt does not seem to fit at all. Antrodia species also get elongated pseudo-teethed pores upon getting older or on slanting substrates. But Antrodia is another guess only. There are more genera to be considered.

Would you tell me why this is not a Schizopora? Thanks. Phil
