It usually grows with the gills downward like other mushrooms, not sure why yours would have been the other way.

Click here for an interesting page on it by Michael Kuo, an excellent amateur mycologist and author that I'm acquainted with, and another page here by another acquaintance, Tom Volk from the University of Wisconsin in LaCrosse.

Ahhhhh So it's like the shelf mushrooms. No stem and instead of pores on the underside it has a gilled appearance.

Right, and it's supposedly not very closely related to other gilled mushrooms.

Also, it has, according to Tom Volk, more than 28,000 sexes.
