Growing on fallen downy birch branch
Caution: Do NOT use iSpot to identify fungi to eat!
Some fungi are very poisonous so a mistaken ID could have serious consequences.
No interactions present.
The pic shows it has gills so it isn't a birch polypore. Maybe birch mazegill or an oysterling?
Gosh, what is that doing growing at this time of year? It must be frost proof!
The earliest I have found this is November and the latest well into December.
I've not seen this species before, but I shall add it to my wish list.
We're a hardy lot up here - even the fungi are tough! I presume this is a teenage version. There are baby ones growing on the same branch. If this one gets any bigger I'll post another photo. If you're in Scotland do come and admire it!
