Notes: Just started getting into mushroom identification so i’m not so great with terminology/identification yet but I hope to improve and learn a bit more!
Location: Mixed hardwood forested area with oaks, ashes, and large poplar species. Found growing on a large log with another species that seems to look like the same kind of species but this other one grew more from a stalk out of the log.
Color: Clean white inside when picked. The pores on the underside of the mushroom are a yellowish white color but since I picked it, it’s (bruising) turning a darker frown color.
It also has a very similar mushroom smell that you would expect just like when you buy them in the store.

Polyporus squamosus definitely looks right because I saw one that was more shelf-like growing on another log. I got it down to the polypores in my book but my book didnt have that species in it. My friend was pretty sure it was edible too. I also found one a bit more scaly on top that seems to look right.
Thanks a lot!
I added another picture of the other one I saw.
