Unfortunately I cannot get a species ID as I was too late for the spores. Resupinates last a lot longer than mushrooms like Brittlegills and Agarics, so it is easy to miss the spores. I tried several ways to tease the remaining spores out, including cutting slits in the fruit body. Sadly it didn't work, but the first photo shows two types of cystidia which are characteristic of Peniophora species. At least we got to genus!
