Not P. squamosus, but another Polyporus species is possible.

Nice shot. Pretty wide. I agree with Mark. Another trait of Dryad's saddle is that it will smell like strong watermelon rind... It may just be well weathered.

Nice one. No scales on top so not certain of P squamosus. all else looks good though. Do you remember the dimensions?

Appears to be Dryad's Saddle. Cannot see the top of the mushroom though.
