Either T.biforme or T.abietinum, I’d say.

Former is on deciduous trees, and the latter is on conifers.

Bob, the violet color would seem to indicate Trichaptum.

Do you have photo of the fertile surface? If it also has violet coloration (which often is most noticable at the margin) this could be T. biforme.
