ID request, think it could be Inonotus Hispidus.

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.

Hi, was the top of the bracket velvety? Inonotus hispidus is usually found on Ash and apple.Sometimes you can see older,darker remains from previous years on the tree or ground nearby. Mid to late Summer is a good time to spot them before they decay and fall to the ground later on in the year.
