By a process of elimination I suggest Abortiporus biennis (Bull.) Singer, extremely variable,sometimes in urban settings (reported on wood chips by Phillips). The pore surface color (slightly rufescent?) and form in photo are compatible; pilei are much paler than shown on Mykoweb but see these photos:

A variable species, indeed.

Are those pores?

Wish you have a better photo of the fertile surface, are those pores? They kinda look like pores, and not teeth/spines. This looks a little like Bondarzewia montana, but that one should be mycorrhizal, and in the ground, not on wood chips, I believe… does someone else have another suggestion?
