Pycnoporellus & Spongipellis are soft, like almost all of the monomitic polypores. The photo looks like a perennial conk that has turned upside down and is trying to lay down a fresh layer of tubes.

The texture was hard.

Alan, You’re on your own on this one. My best guess would be Fomitopsis pinicola.

Was this hard like a Ganoderma or soft like marshmallows?
