This looks one hundred percent like Meruliopsis corium…

Byssomerulius/Meruliopsis corium maybe? The pictures don’t show the hymenium in detail, but I’m not sure that it would help much.

So-called parchment fungus

for certain, but which one? Can’t see enough detail on the surface to tell for sure. Branch material is growing from appears to be a hardwood (Vine maple? Red alder?) even though abundant leaf-litter of Coastal redwood on the ground. This might be Two-tone Parchment, Laxitextum bicolor, found in Audubon Society’s Field Guide to North American Mushrooms, p. 420, color photo 573. That’s just a guess. Would need confirmation of growth on a hardwood branch rather than redwood.
