is what I first thought too. Trametes hirsuta pore surface does discolor but they have small round pores.
The other one that came to mind was Trichaptum sector but I don’t think that would occur any further north then the gulf states…

These were growing from a dead hardwood stick about two inches in diameter. I found it laying on the ground in a dry spot on a hillside overlooking the Ohio river. There are lots of beach trees in there, but the forests here are very diverse, so pinning down the exact host would require a little investigative work.

Cerrena unicolor looks promising.
