Fungus on Acacia

Question

Spotted this on a battle hardened Acacia acuminata within our plantation. Firm to touch

It's far to young to say for sure. It seems to be a Phellinus sp., but could also be a young Fomes sp., or some other polypore.

this is pretty cool...

"Aborigines have used Phellinus fruiting bodies medicinally. The smoke from burning fruit bodies was inhaled by those with sore throats. Scrapings from slightly charred fruiting bodies were drunk with water to treat coughing, sore throats, "bad chests", fevers and diarrhoea."
