Large Black Bracket Fungus on Large Tree

Observed: 5th October 2010 By: dannyatbdannyatb’s reputation in Fungi and Lichensdannyatb’s reputation in Fungi and Lichens

These large black bracket fungi were found quite far up a tree in Nottingham. Is there enough shown in the image to know the possible species or not?


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

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

Species interactions

No interactions present.

Sorry, I am not very good with trees, so I don't know what tree it is, I didn't pay notice to what species the tree was, when i took the photo.

Thanks, understood - with fungi it is often useful to look at the substrate, or surrounding plants as some fungi are very closely associated with host plants and identification of these can often aid the fungal identification.

Best wishes
