                               Is this Lumpy Bracket

9" - 1 foot across. White with green bands. The green appears to be a mold added on. Growing on fallen branch in woodland where there are beech, plane, sycamore, yew and pine trees. Little, similar, fungi growing on the top of the main one.
When I photographed this same kind of fungus (last year?) it was IDed as Lumpy Bracket But! . . When I read up about Lumpy Bracket it says it grows on standing beech. All the fungi I found like this in this wood was growing on fallen or felled wood - then and now.


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

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