I like the photos through your magifier! Why didn’t I think of that? If this is identified correctly, it is the first photo on MO showing a brown upper surface.

This was brought in by another member. I placed it on the ground for the photos, it had definitely been growing from
a tree, probably hardwood, very dark and weathered. It was not growing in rosettes from the ground, and color of top of shelves is dark red-brown, not
tan. It definitely has pores, although they do begin to look like teeth at the base of each of the shelves. I was also thinking of C. septentrionale until I saw that. In photos I’ve seen of its spines, they are definitely cylindrical
and blunly pointed. These look like blades with semi-circular cross section.

I’ve found what I identified as I. resinosum, the pores were very tiny, almost
invisible. ( http://mushroomobserver.org/13859?search_seq=855938 ) Pore pictures here are about 10X .

in the pics the fungi appears to be coming from the ground although the manner that the Shelves are laying a top each other suggest it was found on wood. a tree trunk perhaps. Usually when a polypore Is coming from the ground it is in more of a rosette. This looks a lot like What is known as the Resinous polypore (Ischnoderma resinosum)

above ground level on a standing elm or maple tree?
