looks very past its prime, aged, old, algaed, no wonder you couldn’t find any spores but I agree it could be Trametes.

More data, kind of.

I was trying to get the spores – but the thing didn’t produce anything. Belatedly, I applied KOH, producing (barely) pinkish result. These fungi grow singularly, or in very small groups. The fungus is generally larger in size than Trametes versicolor, and always have algae and, therefore, greenish color.
See observation 63942 for what I think is identical species.
