Fruiting bodies on dead Leylandii.

Is this Gloeophyllum odoratum? It's on a topped-out Leylandii stem. Only one top out of 100s that had this.

Bodies are approx. 2cm and hard.

Graham,
Definitely not G. odoratum that should have a very strong smell of fennel. This probably is a still developing and partially resupinate Trametes with a velvet surface on top.

Thanks. I'll hang on to the wood to see what develops.
