Description:

Second year this has appeared in autumn. About 50 feet high, growing out of hole in side of horse chestnut tree. It`s about 20 inches wide, pale mustard yellow beneath, I think it`s cream on top with veiney brown patterns. Last year it lasted a few weeks then started to rot in wet weather and fell off intact.
