Root Fomes

Thanks for your help Fenwickfield,
These fungi were dry and crusty, not at all moist like many other types of fungi. Is that what Root Fomes are like? I have seen these before but never knew what they were called.

Bracket

Can look different depending at which stage there at,if you walk an area on a regular basis,then try and get photo's at different stages of development also pictures of the gills or pores help to.I find it interesting but it is a very vast subject and I am only a amateur,must take years to know them all.

Happy hunting

Fomes

Thanks, I realise I am only finding out about the tip of the fungal iceberg at the moment. The more I try to find out , the less I realise I know. It is very interesting!

Courses

Thanks, I have considered a fungi course but the only ones I found were in Glencoe and Malham. I can't fit those in at present. Will keep looking.
