That looks like a..................

That looks like a very diminutive example of a bracket. The upper surface does not seem to show the side-to-side annual growth rings that Ganoderma sp. usually have, but instead has top-to-bottom wrinkles. Perhaps the bracket is too young for growth rings to show? Could sub-zero temperatures have caused the wrinkles? However, the internal structure looks right for Ganoderma sp, so I'm a little confused! :)
