I found 2 of these at the base of a deciduous healthy looking tree. I took one and cut it open to show the internal structure. It is firm but succulent inside and stains brown/black after a few seconds on contact with air. No discernible pores and it doesn't appear to be a bracket as such. I was thinking it could be a immature chicken of the woods but the colour is very pale.
