It looks more like Pycnoporus sanguineus, but you should obtain a more reliable identification from someone who actually studies polypores from the tropics.

My first thought is /Laetiporus (Polyporus) sulphureus/, what is often 
called "chicken-of-the-woods" here. The genus is widespread, but I don't 
know if it's found in Brazil.
