Turkeytail (Trametes versicolor)
Description:

A small patch of bracket fungus growing on the stump of a eucalyptus. It is possible that the fungus is now dead as the bark is tending to peel from the stump and, because of other trees overhead, there is little other source of water.
Edit: title changed to match Graham's ID. Thanks.
