Large fungus growing on rotten felled stump of an unidentified tree. Suspect it is Turkeytail but I'm not sure.


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

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

Many thanks flaxton,

I happened to be back in Stoke Woods today, so I went to check again.

It's 10 days since I originally photographed the fungus and by now it's very dry and crumbling. However, I have added another photograph, showing the underside of one broken bracket (approx. 50mm in width) and there aren't any obvious pores, so I suspect your identification is the correct one.
