Not a Ganoderma but it does

Not a Ganoderma but it does not look right for Daedaleopsis either :( Trametes gibbosa?

I was also considering

I was also considering Daedalea quercina but dismissed it on grounds of not being thick enough. Ditto for T.gibbosa having a similer (thick) shape to Oak Mazegill.
Im certain the tree species is going to be a vital bit of info to ID.
