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.
Located upon a felled ash tree. Image appears much larger than it actually is!!
Looks big enough to rival the Angel of the North!
There ought to be a ring if this is honey fungus, although I don't think I can see one. However HF seems to be very variable, so I suppose its possible. The black stuff coming out of the trunk could be rhizoids of HF, I suppose too. Someone will put me right, I am sure.

It looks like it has grown through a crack in the wood from where it was growing before the tree was cut. The narrow gap may have done something to the ring. There is a notch in the cap that lines up with scratches on the stalk that also indicates this may be true.
