Recognized by sight: There a lot of these white toothed resupinate fungi. Irpex lacteus and Spongipellis pachyodon are at least fairly distinctive but this isn’t either of those. This does look like it could be Sarcodontia setosa, but I’m not sure what macro features differentiate that from other similar things.
