Some fungi are very poisonous so a mistaken ID could have serious consequences.
No interactions present.
Is this growing on buried wood?

Jonathan, I am afraid the Head Ranger at Kingston Lacey returned my email with only a two word response "Meripilus giganteus".
I wish I could answer your question. The truth is that I assumed that these two specimens were growing from trees that had been felled to ground level, but as they were on National Trust property and in full view of the car park I was loathed to do anything that might have looked like vandalism.
As this obviously will help in making an identification I shall try to contact the National Trust at Kingston Lacey to ascertain whether they were growing on wood or not.
Did you have an alternative "look-a-like" that DOESNT grow from wood?
