Interested to know what is happing here, from a distant it looks like a Tam o' Shanter!
ID would be nice but why the structure on top would be better
No identification made yet.
No interactions present.
Mine was a bracket on Birch with a ball on top. Have a look at my other observations and you will be able to see it.
I've seen a number of species showing this kind of form, don't know why.
I have put an entry in the Fungi forum in an attempt to find this out with a link to my image of a Birch Polypore with a globe on the top of it.
