Black Tree Fungus Identification

Asked November 6, 2019, 11:42 AM EST

I am having trouble identifying what genus this tree fungus is a part of. I know the photo is taken somewhere in southwestern Oregon and I believe it is some kind of black stain fungus. I would greatly appreciate any help in finding out what genus it is a part of.

If it's black stain root disease, it should be: Leptographium wageneri.
