If the hymenium is likewise

it is most probably the same. You should make a few more photos of them all.

Do you think

http://mushroomobserver.org/128777?q=145Ju could be the same fungus? It was on the other side of this same stump.

I’ll do it

Do not get stuck to my information on the stump, because although most of the trees being cut pine, nothing prevents of these ones being different, the stumps are already old.In fact I think this fungus very different from my observation http://mushroomobserver.org/124242?q=145Ju.

Yes, indeed.

But how to decide? I was not there. All we have is Elsa’s suggestions ;)

I saw that pine was a guess, but the oak(s) could have been chopped down many years ago, and oak stumps are very persistent.

this was my first suggestion on these findings but Elsa thinks the stumps are from pine trees.

Why not

Daedalea quercina (and obs 128774, 128776 & 128777 the same)?
It can occur both with a scrupose upper surface and purple discoloration.

Couldn’t they be growing on old oak stumps?

In comparison, the pores/mazes on Porodaedalea pini are much smaller. At least in my area..

I think

all these observations could be Porodaedalea pini, better known as Phellinus pini.
But it’s difficult to account for the very felty upper side of the shelf. Could be due to age.
But there are similar ones in the Mediterranean. The upper surface would better fit for Inonotus ss. lat. but then the daedaleoid hymenium speaks against it.
