Bracket on dead wood

Please try to include photos to show all parts of the fungus, eg top, stem, and gills.
Note any smells, and associated trees or plants (eg oak, birch). A spore print can be very useful.

I'd be grateful if someone could confirm the id of this bracket. Found on dead wood (hazel I think) in deciduous woodland last October. Many thanks.

Hi Ernesto,
I would say that this one is impossible to identify without looking at the spores,
