Observation 5794: Hexagonia hydnoides (Sw.) M. Fidalgo
When: 2007-12-26
No herbarium specimen

Notes: On tamarind stump. That same hairy-bristly shelf that’s everywhere.

Sorry, I see that “polypores” are actually strewn over multiple orders, I’ll leave it as “fungi” until I have a clue.

In Mushrooms of the Southeastern US by Bessette etal there’s a hairy, blackish polypore called Hexagonia hydnoides aka Polyporus hydnoides that looks similar to yours.
