Bracket fungus

Observed: 1st February 2010 By: es349es349’s reputation in Fungi and Lichens
Underside of Bracket fungus
Topside of Bracket fungus
Description:

Bracket fungus, about 5 inches across and similar thickness. Rounded in shape and knobbly on top, difficult to tell where the underside (pores) and the rim meet, but there seemed to be a whitish rim on the two specimens observed. One group growing about two foot and the other (single specimen) about one foot up from the base of a horse chestnut tree. Hard and cork like to touch. Is anyone able to help with identification please?

Very...............

Very difficult to identify as there don't seem to be many defining characteristics.
