had a look at Michael Kuo’s site and while he describes this as a resupinate species there is a photo that shows imbricate growth, very musch like your photo. That’s why I love the fungi, a surprise often awaits!
The only other option would be another Phlebia species like P. radiata or rufa but I think it is tremellosa. Plicaturopsis crispa has a totally different gestalt and an almost pure white hymenophore.
Phlebia tremellosa to me. While it can be reflexed, I have always considered it a resupinate species and have never seen an imbricate growth you have here. While the hymenium is merulioid I think it could be another species.
Hard to get a handle on the size, so it might even be Plicatoropsis crispa if it’s really small.
It was too interesting to pass up!
Nice fruiting of P. tremellosa to photograph!
