Thanks for your comment.
This same day I found, not far from this place, a specimen that I identifyed as S. iludens (see MO82800). The color of this one seems a bit different and, so, I hesitated. Today I return to the place of the observation and I found another specimen (I upload two photos of it). I believe that you are right and all of them belong to the same species.

a lot like the Australian species Stereum illudens. It has been found in South America and Africa presumably introduced with Eucalyptus exports, perhaps it’s been introduced to Portugal. Compare with observation 48916.
