Recognized by sight: I’m not an expert but by the rusty red pore surface and the host, I would say this is a Phellinus sp. I would bet that the pores are were smallish and round to slightly angular? You don’t have the specimen?

- I have found this same fungus in upstate New York and successfully keyed it using the Audubon book. Sadly I do not have the book with me and do not recall the exact name.
