Observation 67929: Phellinus Quél.

Notes:
The shape and surface of the woody fungi attracted me to take some images. The surface was moonlike to me with all the crater look-a-likes on the surface.

I had found it here, I’d guessed some Phellinus, but I don’t know what you have in Australia to choose from.

Irene, Hello there. Nice to hear from you. I forgot to give the size of the knob. About 10cm longest measurement. I think you are pretty close with Konk.

it’s some kind of conk, but without a developed pore layer – resembling very young stages of Fomes, Fomitopsis, Phellinus, Ganoderma etc..
The question is, will it develop pores, or is this what it should look like, producing spores on a smooth hymenium?

Darv, Do you think it might just have been a wood notch. Sometimes trees do this, but this one looked more like a woody fungi.???

No pores or tubes?

It seems to be missing the hymenium. No spore bearing surface.
