Recognized by sight: Based on broad indistinct veins and dark slender rhizines — P. polydactylon is similar, but I wouldn’t expect it on wet mossy rotten logs like this, also it should be thicker and have less well-developed rhizines in my experience. More typical neopolydactyla — especially in such ideal habitat — would be much broader and undulating, but alas, it is highly variable with respect to size.
