Could be Phellinus

It’s definitely a possibility. I was thinking Phellinus initially. It was hard to tell because it was so small. There were other larger ones higher up in the tree I couldn’t get to that were definitely Ganoderma.

Looks like a Phellinus. Hard to tell from the photos and the small size of the conk. The internal structure of the tubes can help to ID Ganoderma.
