Recognized by sight: It looks about right for this genus, but without seeming the stem and how it was attached to the wood it’s hard to say for sure.

Probably Pleurotus

Couldn’t say what species though. It’s much yellower than what we commonly see in California and without seeing the stem or the spores it’s pretty hard to say what it might be.

Please help ID?

If someone could help identify that would be great, I think it is some kind of Pleurotus ostreatus or maybe Pleurotus populinus? Thank you in advance!
