they cutted the tree, and I finally could take closer images, you see? I didn’t need the stairs :p

Haha, I often did even riskier things for mushrooms ;)

Yes, the upper side of the “cap” would be great and a closer look at the hymenium too.

I am not seeing myself

taking the stairs to there… make a fuss and such… nah, the daughter of my mother wouldn’t do that :)

What would it take, the “cap” (exterior) photo?

Cerrena. You should make some more photos on close range tho.

The growth mode is more similar to Cerena, one third bracket two thirds attached to the tree trunk.

Yes you’re right. Last photo is a joke :p

It is not easy to see but either you could look for Cerrena unicolor or Bjerkandera adusta. The last pic shows no mushroom at all.

I guess you meant Polyporaceae sensu lato or Polyporales sensu lato.
