It could be.............

It could be smokey bracket (Bjerkandera adjusta). However, I think the upper surface should be grey, whereas this has more a brown with distinct zoning. Thus it could be Trametes versicolor (Turkeytail), which is very variable and sometimes appears like this. There is also Hairy Curtain Crust growing beside the other fungi in the bottom two photographs.
