Poronia punctata Nail Fungus

Have added a couple more photos showing just how much it looks like a nail, also the spores coming out. A red data list species? Relatively common in a few parts of the New Forest but very rare elsewhere.


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

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