Slightly pinkish fungus growing on eastern aspect of a large branch that had dropped from a veteran oak about 3 years ago. Any idea of ID? Are they both the same type?


Caution: Do NOT use iSpot to identify fungi to eat!

Some fungi are very poisonous so a mistaken ID could have serious consequences.

    Likely ID
    Crust Fungi (Phlebia sp.)
    Confidence: It might be this.
