It looks like mushroom, but they are very hard, like shells. They are growing on the old tree (at least over 100 years old). This is about 6~8 inches long.


They are growing on an old maple tree.

This is a type of conk, though I don't know if you can tell what species without knowing what type of tree it was growing on.
