Found on a fallen log smack in the middle of a popular hiking trail. Could not provide any shots of the gills as I just bought the camera and was learning how to take clear shots and I wasn’t aware of the importance of the underside to identification; I was very inexperienced.

I’ve read a couple of descriptions for Neolentinus ponderosus and I’m more convinced with each word that that’s what we have here. The yellow flesh is indeed a result of age, as is the margin that goes from convex to plane. The patches are present here, and it did in fact have stems attached to the log.
I’m not even sure I’ve seen these in person. Someone else may be able to weigh in with more info.
That seems to be it myxomop, thank you for that identification. Why do the ones that I’ve found seem to be more flatter and with a more distinct margin? Age?
