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.
It's not Birch polypore (Piptoporus betulinus),look's more like Hoof fungus (Fomes fomentarius) but would have liked to see the pores before giving id.
You are right with this suggestion.
