Fungus on tree

Fungus on Sorbus tree
Description:

This fungus is growing on a Sorbus tree in Bournemouth Central Gardens. It is perennial, has a green upper surface and orange/brown, honeycomb like flesh which is difficult to break off. I thought it is Rigidoporus ulmarius but the flesh isn't striped. What could it be?

Could be an old Meripilus

Could be an old Meripilus giganteus.

Definitely not Meripilus; not mushroom like, rather solid, like a dense shelf from ground level up to around 25cm. visited it again today.
