Stereum species are characterized by a smooth hymenifore, not a pored surface as the species depicted has. A group of Phellinus species is resupinate, pored, and grows on the underside of branches etc. Microscopical characters are needed for species identification.

The photo shows the pores on the bottom, not the top of a cap.

How did you ID this one? Other photos that I called up do not have pores on top surface. I am no resupe expert, just curious.
