My books say Skeletocutis

My books say Skeletocutis amorpha is common as well. However they don't mention the concentric zones of different shades that this one has and describe the pores as being very minute, scarcely visible to the unaided eye. It like to grow on twigs and branches of deciduous trees. I think the fungus here is Turkeytail. It is very common. However that fungus too is rarely seen on conifer.
