More information

Hi Chloe,

I've not been an iSpot user for long but one tip I've picked up is to provide as much information and photos from as many angles and distances as possible. Particularly for fungi identification, photos or at least a description of the underside (and stem if present) is often vital.

Based on a similar observation I posted and my very limited knowledge, this might be Oak Curtain Crust (Hymenochaete rubiginosa) or possibly even Turkeytail (Trametes versicolor). The latter would have small pores on the underside, while the former wouldn't.

Well said!

The underside of brackets can make all the difference. I agree probably Turkeytail.
