Coltricia perennis (Echte tolzwam (BE) / Tiger's Eye (EN) / Dauerporling (DE) / Polypore vivace (FR)) is a species of fungus in the Hymenochaetaceae family.
Coltichia perennis fruits on the ground in sandy soil under conifers. Fruitbodies are stalked (up to 5cm tall and 1 cm wide) and the funnel-shaped caps are usually between 2 and 10 cm wide, up to 5mm thick.
They typically have well-defined concentrically bands of colors, these ranging from cinnamon-brown, yellow-brown, golden yellow to grey. Important identifying features are the tomentose cap surface and a usually decurrent tube layer.

I really like the concentric rings on this one, Johan. I have been looking at your images daily, but have not had the time to comment.
