I think this is probably a type of woodwart and possibly Hypoxylon multiforme but I believe that's most common on Birch, which I'm not sure this is.


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

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

Does say

In books it does say that it is mainly Silver birch but can be found on other hardwood trees occasionally your looks like Ash tree.

Many thanks Fenwickfield, you may well be right about it being Ash. I spotted a recent post of yours about this variety sometimes being found on other hardwood trees, which is what prompted me to post this observation.
