I believe I photographed the same thing in West Virginia. I had no luck with the ID. Bill Roody has also found and photographed it there. We never had luck with the ID. My photo is at http://mushroomobserver.org/18084?q=3Dmo

there is a Meruliopsis in fungi of switz 144, that the top is obviously not like but the underside could give a clue. Maybe there are others in this genus?.. I believe that the topside is much too zonate for the said PUNCTULARIA STRIGOSOZONATA images, and description in mycobank. Why not just send it to T Volk?

I think it’s much more useful to propose another ID, instead of
knocking it back to Fungi sp. Users don’t learn anything from
that. What is your suggestion for genus?

do NOT have phlebioid hymenium; from the top it looks just like it, but…
Hymenochaete are smooth like Stereum

It seems to depend on who takes a look at it before the observation
gets too old & gets kicked down the list — or maybe there just aren’t a
lot of people interested in polypores! And to some, this
is either a “turkey teil” or “false turkey tail.”

Looks to me like this is the same thing … from Darv’s ID
