Please try to include photos to show all parts of the fungus, eg top, stem, and gills.
Note any smells, and associated trees or plants (eg oak, birch). A spore print can be very useful.

I found this one growing out of dead moist bark on the mossy ground no noticeable smell to be noted. Fairly small about 1 1/2" tall head about the size of a 10p piece.

Unfortunately, unlike the Birch Polypore, much more information would be needed in order to give any reasonable suggestion as to the species shown here.

Common sense is not so common.

Unusual to get a gill and stem shot, and not a top shot. :)
Unfortunately cant see the gill attachment type :(
