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.

Good photo's but it would be useful to know what type of tree it's growing on as most bracket fungi are host specific. This does look like , Dadaleopsis confragosa, the Blushing Bracket usually found on Salix ( willow ).

I agree about Daedaleopsis, but it would be useful to know the habitat as well; please do read viewtopic.php?f=4&t=49
