Large orange slimey bracket fungus, on dead tree trunk
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.
No sorry no more photo's.You can just about make out the gills on the first photo. I don't like to disturb them.
It is okay to remove one for photo's as the spores are already dispersed by the time they get to this stage.
I know it is daft but I always feel it's a shame and a bit sad when fungi are destroyed. Some people seem to think it is either fun or that fungi are dangerous and smash them or kick them over. I know that's not the same as picking one for identification but I find it hard to pick them.
I fully understand there are lot's of problem's were they are picked to eat but the people are not just taking a couple there removing everything.As for identification purposes you could try to angle the camera so you can get a photo of the underside.I only look for fungi were I live but I am trying to make detailed records of all fungi in my area I also record my finds on a data base .It is really up to you what you do if your just wanting a rough idea of what it is then taking a snap of the fungi is fine but if your wanting 100% identification then it's rather more complex.
