Recognized by sight: As long as this was growing from the ground— from the roots of the tree, as it appears, I think the pores are going to be white, making it Laetiporus cincinnatus. If on a log or directly on wood, it’s likely L. sulphureus. In either case, it’s very young and at its most delicious stage. See http://botit.botany.wisc.edu/toms_fungi/jul2001.html
