Notes: These look like Piptoporus betulinus — white with brownish flaky stuff on top, very small pores, a rounded white raised (lowered?) rim around the pore surface, and erupting from birch with a stubby stipe forcing the bark aside.
Except that they’re freaking huge, up to 10cm wide, not the 2-3 more typical in my experience of P. betulinus.
Found on a fallen Betula papyrifera branch in Zone 48.
