This is yet another difficult one. There are a lot of brownish-red brackets with descending cream pores, particularly in the genera Fomitopsis and Ganoderma.

Second photo is of the same group of brackets over two months later.

I’d vote Ganoderma

Possibly G. tsugae, but still quite young. Only very young specimens of Ganoderma have white edges still. In my area, only G. applanatum has white tubes in maturity, but I don’t think these are mature, yet.
