Recognized by sight: Bondarzewia berkeleyi barely occurs east of the Mississippi as far as I know. Older Laetiporus can fade to white, but it’s hard to tell exactly what’s going on in this photo. What sort of trees were around?
B. berkeleyi has a paler cap in any case

growing on a buried stump on the ground by the parking area. there were native and non-native trees around. I remember Live Oak close by and Eucalyptus at some distance. There were Lactarius alnicola and Russula cerulens nearby. If you blow up the third photo, there seem to be irregular pores underneath. They look somewhat like a few photos here? http://www.messiah.edu/...
