Description:

One of several fungi of the same type found an a very wet uprooted wooden post in the middle of some grassland. Brown cap, essentially flat but dips above the joint with the stipe. Edge of cap slightly uneven and fringed with short filaments. Pores off-white. Stipe similar colour to top of the cap.
The best match I can make is Winter polypore, but there is little confidence behind it.
