I've seen alot of these around not sure what they are though. You in the midwest, just out of curiosity?

DH has it. Those are Polyporus squamosus, also known as Dryad's Saddle. They are edible when very young and tender. They become very tough as they age.

Happy mushrooming!

Yup, definitely Polyporus squamosus. Dryad's Saddle is one of my favorite polypores. Perhaps it's just me, but I've always thought they were aesthetically pleasing. Great find!
