This is fomitopsis pini-canadensis for sure. Sometimes the colors do not appear. Was it found in high elevation and away from good sunlight? I had a specimin i looked at that had the same features. It turned out to be that. Im 100% certain that is ehat you have.

Pycnoporellus & Spongipellis are soft, like almost all of the monomitic polypores. The photo looks like a perennial conk that has turned upside down and is trying to lay down a fresh layer of tubes.

The texture was hard.

Hard? Soft? Teeth?

I’d stick with Unknown, myself.

Alan, You’re on your own on this one. My best guess would be Fomitopsis pinicola.

Was this hard like a Ganoderma or soft like marshmallows?
