Dryads Saddle Fungus

This looks very similar to what is known as Polyporus Squamosus, which is a basidiomycete bracket fungus.

I'd agree with Dryad's Saddle -

gt3264, why not add an identification?
I think that the site's "fungi-philes" would like to see the underside to be sure, but I reckon it's the likely candidate.
