Trametes pubescens

Trametes pubescens

Found growing on a fallen Prunus branch at the base of a hedgerow that has been allowed to grow into mature trees.
The under side is of two merged brackets that have formed on the under side of a twig that is about 25mm thick on the left side of the image and 20mm on the right. Plenty of insect holes in the wood too. That little grey beetle might just have come out of one of the holes though.
That top image almost warrants another visit!
Nice fruit in the summer too.


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

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

Its very annoying that the right hand image is all fuzzy, was it taken on a smartphone or similar. I was using one the other day and it kept focussing on the wrong things. Fungus itself looks quite interesting and worth another visit.

Fuzzy now drizzly

I have paid a second very cold drizzly visit and got the fuzzy sorted out even though i only have a £99 camera. It can be coaxed!
