Well-organized white fungus

white fungus on tree

What I thought was interesting about this fungus was its rather obsessive organization. There it is with a smooth, even covering of the tree trunk, and then intermittently it suddenly puts out a shelf at almost precise right angles—fluted and curling a bit to be sure in the direction of the shelving, but at a pretty consistent thickness, without any extreme thick-to-thin transitions.

Most fungi that I’ve seen are a lot sloppier in their assemblage. This one looks like it has a compulsion to be tidy.
