Some kind of fungus growing on a fungal Gall i think. It is on Silver Birch. There is Polypore on a near by tree.
Caution: Do NOT use iSpot to identify fungi to eat!
Some fungi are very poisonous so a mistaken ID could have serious consequences.
No interactions present.
don't think the gall is caused by a fungus but not sure was does cause it
I thought it might have been a Crown Gall that is on a tree that is weakened and unable to support it any more due to the Birch tree being out grown by Sweet Chestnut.
