This is one of those many species that's had a name change from Pycnoporus to Trametes. Good to see there are still some fungi around. Sometimes if you look along the logs these grow on or at the ends, you will see that bright orange colour of their hyphae that make the log look like it's full of hot coals!
By the way if you want to find if there's been a name change do a search for Index Fungorum and on their search page click on the 'name' button then type in the name of the fungus you are searching in the window to the right. The spelling has to be correct. Anyway with a bit of practice you will get the hang of the site.
