Observation 25227: Polyporales sensu lato

This white, ( I would presume Bracket fungi) surprised me in the fact that it was white on both sides. I have provided images showing both sides. The fungi was about 10-12cm across. Other fungi in close proximity were all different to this particular specimen. I did notice a small host white fungi on the nearby example.
In the third image a colour correction disk shows that the true colour of the fungi is more of a warm white tending to skin tones in the outer regions.
