Hello, folks. I'm just getting into 'shrooming in PA, and could use some help with identification. Found this on a fallen tree. There were several dozens growing in clusters. White polyspore white/pale yellow on top.Very light tan/yellow on bottom.

Cheers.

Looks like an old chicken of the woods to me. When they get past their prime they lose their color, eventually becoming completely white. But, make a note of the location of that tree, and go back earlier next year. You might find a nice flush of chickens. I found a brand new chicken log this year. I know it's brand new because I've been hiking past it for years, and never saw anything on it. This year, I spotted the chickens from about 80 yards away, before I got anywhere near the log. Don't know how long it will last before the log is played out, but I'll enjoy it until it does.

Looks like white cheese polypore to me also. I've neverseen or hear of a "chicken" with light tan bottom.If it was a chicken that turned white on top it would also trun white on the bottom. Most chickens show some sort of brancnihg but these pics don;'t show that.
