No specimen available

I was going to call this Irpex lacteus, from the description in The Audubon Guide to North American Mushrooms. But I’m not certain of the identification. The most important feature, although they are difficult to see, perhaps, are the spines on the spore-bearing surface. It was very difficult because of the tiny size to try to get both the fungus and the fertile surface both in focus. On a small, long branch of what I think was Vine maple. But it could also have been a nearly bark-less Western hemlock stem as well.
