Not sure this is.............

Not sure this is Razorstop fungus, as it only grows on Birch and the edge doesn't look quite thick enough. At a guess it could be Postia (Blueing bracket) or Inonotus dryadeus (Oak Bracket).

Bracket Fungus

It definitely is not Razor Strop Fungus. With the algae on top of the bracket I would take a guess that it could be Trametes gibbosa but I need to see the pores an know what species of tree it is growing on. I can think of three more species it could be.
