Brain like shape, purpleish colour, found growing on dead tree in mixed woodland. Any ID help much appreciated.
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.
Many thanks Fenwickfield, I couldnt find this in my fungi field guide, it was fascinating to look at, have never come across this before.
It is quite young and changes with age,like a lot of fungus so some are much harder to ID than others.It was in a book on Fungi by Michael Jorden,has a lot in and good photo's
Many thanks Sheila, my book doesnt have this in at all. I will see if I can get hold of a copy. Tracy
