I’ll look for it next year and see if I can catch some spores.

OK so it’s on a maple. (Hard to tell with the bugs eating it, but the leaves are opposite). I agree with Noah that is could be Polyporus squamosus, but it’s hard to see the nature of the pores (should be diamond shaped) and it lacks the black stem typical of P. squamosus. Something odd is happening with the fungus pushing its way out of the tree scar, making it appear to have a stalk. I think it might be a Perenniporia. Can you stand under it and see if you can collect dextrinoid spores? :) alas, we may never know.
