I think is last year’s fruiting. It could be an ash stump.

Nobody likes Inonotus sp.?

Ive only seen P faxinea (again as Christian states, what something like it in NA) twice in the Midwest.
Walt, if you look at your first picture, there is some thing black near the base of the stump. And the second as well near the perimeter. In both of my pictures, and some on the net, that is present as well. Dont know what it is, and when I came across it, didnt inspect it very closely.

What about

Perenniporia fraxinea (at least that’s what we call it in N America).
