Too spiny and wrong colour for both (Phlebia) radiata and tremellosa. Cerocorticium molare is rather common on oak (Quercus) in Europe, but I’m not a great fan of corticious fungi myself and don’t know all other possibilities.

I was thinking it could be a flat version of Phlebia tremellosa. But I’m really just guessing, I’m not a big guy on crusts. But it has the yellow and pink of P. tremellosa.

The photos here aren’t the best, it was a rather dark part of the forest. I guess I need to check out the other two options…

Not likely Phlebia radiata

It reminds more of Radulomyces molaris/Cerocorticium molare, but of course you have a lot of other things in California.
