reminds me more of D. septentrionalis

but people have said this is isolated to Betula spp. I’ve read it also occurs on Sorbus and Abutus

pure guess, definitely take my opinion with a pinch of salt

What sold me on Daedaleopsis

was the pinkish brown coloring of the pore surface(enlarge the third photo), which is apparently common for the species when handled or bruised.
Also, in my experience, Lentinus betulinus usually has coarser or thicker “gills”.
