" Surprised to find such a display in the middle of a heat wave"

It just shows how well-adapted these organisms are, though some are very "choosy" about the time of year when they fruit.

Edit: sorry - bit of a senior moment when adding my attempt at identification - meant to include the fact that there are stipes - the polypore doesn't have those.
