Shelf? Polypore? New to this and trying to learn.

Fungus growing up snag at the border of where I intend to redevelop an old path, currently a deer trail.

Is it turkey tail?

Also does anyone recognize the bark of the trunk?

The top has a sort of velvety feel to it.

There is a stem but it is embedded in the wood. The tree-side of the cap is compacted and clings to the bark and moss.

Hi, I'm not an expert, but you could check it against the specs of a mossy maze polypore, but I'm not certain that it fits all the criteria. Definitely doesn't look like TT to me. The underside of a TT is in the attached photo, more like little pores instead of teeth. http://www.mushroomexpert.com/index.html has a lot of good information that might help you id it. Good luck

Definitely not Turkey Tail.
