Ganoderma zonatum affects palm trees, doesn't look that close to a Red Banded Polypore, though

But it is not from the tropics according to http://www.mushroomexpert.com/fomitopsis... It was growing on neither conifer or deciduous tree but a coconut log.

I found Fomitopsis pinicola on decidous trees so it doesn't live exclusively on coniferous ones.

Thanks SabinNeatu but "Fomitopsis pinicola is one of the most conspicuous and widely distributed polypores in coniferous forest regions of the northern hemisphere." I am near the equator in New Guinea...

Thanks Fernandaortegalogreira, it may indeed be a member of the Ganoderma lucidum complex.
