I think this might be a Phellinus sp. fungus due to the burned look.

There are so much to learn!
Again, thank you very much for all of your information and help.

Rieko, I think your spotting is different than mine. Your spotting looks more hoof-shaped than mine, which is characteristic of Fomes fomentarius, whereas my spotting is a little more thin.

Oh so, my spotting was different from yours?
Or, did I posted a wrong name?

Thank you, Reiko, though I think the Tinder Conk has a different shape.

Thanks Argy, I couldn't touch it because it was about 10-15 m up in a tree, but there is one nearby on the same species of tree that is lower to the ground and has about a 30-35 cm cap, if you would like to see that one.

It looks like Phellinus sp. - that curved cracked woody top is classic. Did you try to move it? I should be hard as a rock.
