This is still fairly immature, but Hexagonia vesparia has such large pores on the underside. If you look at other photos of this species on Canberra Nature Map you'll see that it can develop into a more chunky bracket-like growth. If you happen to see this again another photograph could add interest - but it may still take some time for a more chunky bracket to develop.
