fungi on tree ID?

Can anyone ID the fungi on the tree in my friend's blogpost? (USA if that is any help)

it looks to me like it could be Armillaria tabescens - ringless honey fungus - although I can't see the stems clearly enough to be really sure.
judging by the rest of the woods it is pretty likely to be a honey fungus - spreads like wildfire and is very destructive.

I did wonder.

Is it edible? Just a thought

I have had A. tabescens before - it was quite good - meaty and full flavoured, airc. Think we blanched then fried it. worth a second opinion tho, especially if this isn't uk woodland...
