Recognized by sight: While definately a polypore, I’m marking this could be in hopes someone else actually recognizes it. The black earlier fruiting body should be a good indication of what this might be, as well as the growth on a living oak. BTW, do you know what kind of oak?

it is recolonizing it’s own dead husk of a fruit body. Is it drawing sustainence from the wood and using the old shelves (genetic memory) for fruiting only?
