Not sure I can see zones.

Lovely find! I think it could be Velvet Tooth H. spongiosipes or possibly Wood Hedgehog H. repandum but I await an expert's thoughts.

Did the tooth go slightly down the stem (decurrent)plus can you remember the tree type and any photo's of the stem if possible.

Lack of data

Unfortunately I had my camera on the wrong settings. I have a very blurry shot showing that the teeth were slightly decurrent, which I will now add. I do not recall the type of tree .. all I can say is that next time I am in that area I will take a much better set of photos.
