These pictures are taken from few meters away – I don’t have an access to the property.

Photograph the pores by using a large mirror to see the underside.

The thing is very tough and persistent. Laetiporus that I keep an eye on nearby has blackened and all but crumbled by now (I visit the place about once a week), while this guy is still there. Of course it can be something else entirely – I will entertain other ideas. As far as position on the tree – I used this page for reference:
Also, there are some other subtle (and not so) differences: Laetiporus usually has narrow point of attachment, while this one hugs the tree pretty well. Also, Laetiporus usually produces at least few bodies on top or next to one another, while this one is definitely single. Also notice the pock-marked outer edge of the fungus more typical of Inonotus (although I’d usually expect the edge to be more rolled in Inonotus). Too bad the thing is on private property – examining the bottom would help solve the mystery.

i;m not sure

This sure looks more like the older forms of Laetiporus than the Weeping conk. Placement on the tree is right for the later, but those concentric orange rings make me think more of the sulphur shelf.

Holy fungus!

This guy is roughly two feet long and one foot wide.
