Shelf fungi on chollla cactus

Found this species on a staghorn cholla (opuntia versicolor) at 2700 feet in the catalina foothills, on acacia greggii in Aravaipa canyon north of Tucson at about the same altitude and in suburban Tucson on the invasive Rhus Lancia. Never more than 2" diameter. This fungus pulverizes wood. All the plants were living, but the interior of the acacia was sawdust. A sample used to produce tea and then allowed to ferment produced a distinct chemical smell
