I must have seen this fungus often before, but I've never recorded it, so I'm adding this with the "New to me" tag for the Discover New Life project:
It was growing on a dead Elder branch.


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

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