Thanks Brian 38. You set me on the right track. This is the only species I could find that looked like it. So I went back to the tree. I replaced the photo of the underside to show the actual color.

Definitely a toothed fungus. Take a look at Spongipellis pachyodon as a possibility it develops on rotting hardwoods in eastern N.A.
