Unknown Oyster-like mushroom

Observed: 30th July 2011 By: Coifi123

I spotted this mushroom, which I thought was an oyster mushorrm growing from a dead tree stump. But it has no gills! It is totally smooth underneath. Others had grown to the size of a small plate, and the colour on top had faded to a lighter brown. I cannot identify it from any books.


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

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