I think this fungi is Hexagonia tenuis because of its zonate, yellow and slightly depressed basidiocap.

Yes ur right … this is not Phellinus igniarius . But to conform it as Hexagonia tenuis let us first see the pores. I agree with u upper surface of basidiocarp matches with Hexagonia tenuis.

Yes … if … can kindly provide the photos of the pores the problem will be solved !!!!

That’s all the information I had.
I would repeat … words “That’s enough for now”..
Thanks a lot ! Will do better next time.
