Not off hand by quite common on Cypress types. Look at Meruliopsis corium and 
other resupinate/stereum fungi - Byssomerulius corium. Difficult to nail down 
as even chondrostereum can look like that in early stages as can 
Heterobasidion. Spore print would be first port of call.

Any one know what this fungus could be?



White resupinate fruiting bodies on bark at base of Monterey Cypress. Tree in 
good health. Inner bark tissues under fruiting bodies also appears to be 
healthy and unaffected.

I anticipate that it is relatively benign but would like to be sure.



As an aside, did you know that Cupressus macrocarpa is now called 
Hesperocyparis macrocarpa? I wish the taxonomists would stop doing that.
