What's this?

I think this is some kind of stalked polypore but I haven't got an ID on it yet.

I'm told this is likely Polyporus squamosus, commonly known as Dryad's saddle.

It is an edible mushroom, but perhaps marginally so.

It's hard to tell from a photo alone, but I did look up the name and it said it "is edible when thoroughly cooked, but is thoroughly mediocre."
