Those definitely look different. I believe I have seen those as well. I don’t really hunt many mushrooms other than chickens and morels. Just happened to see these while in the woods and was curious. I looked at pics of berkleys polypore and they do look similar.

Those are without a doubt Bondarzewia berkeleyi. Agree with @jg010682. Nice pics, Happy 🍄 Hunting!

You're absolutely right. I used to get them mixed up long, long ago but now it was just writing before thinking. Foot in mouth.

Anyone have any idea what these are or were? Not really an expert. Both around and at the base of dead ash tree View attachment 40592 View attachment 40593
Definitely Berkeley's polypore, Bondarzewia
berkeleyi. I collect many hen-of-the-woods/maitake, Grifola frondosa, every fall
(Oct) in KY. It grows on our farm and is my favorite edible mushroom other than morels. Its "caps" are much smaller and thinner than Berkeley's polypore--similar to feathers on a hen (or cock)--thus the name.
