That 'hoof' shape and the colour of pores indicates a Phellinus sp. maybe P. robustus. This genus causes white rot and is found on both dead or living wood of both angiosperms and gymnosperms . Ganoderma have white pores and also cause 'white rot' and grow mainly on angiosperms.
Good images, thank you.
