No specimen available

As I was hiking through the woods I could not help but to notcied the trunk of this dead Tree. I spotted it some distance a way but the golden polypore that surrounded the whole tree stood out at some distance. The spore print was brown. This is the closest i could come up for a name for this. If anyone thinks diffent well leave a comment.

Recognized by sight: Globifomes should have pores (I don;t think this does) and a very different shape, more globe shaped as it juts from the tree. Did you check to see if the spores are amyloid, like a Stereum should be? It’s pretty, whatever it is.
