Oyster mushroom

Observed: 31st March 2013 By: anonymous spotter
Oyster mushroom
Description:

Found at Sculthorpe Moor. Approximately 3 feet across growing in marshy fen. Unable to get close to fungus as growing on the other bank of a dyke. I presume the fungus is growing on a tree stump, but it is not visible. On close up appears to have stipes underneath the caps.

Identifications

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

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

It looks more like a Ganoderma to me. Have you a photo of the underside gills/pores and what was the texture?

Ganoderma

I could not get close to it as it was on the other side of a dyke and I could not get permission to get any closer. I agree that it could be Ganoderma and being able to touch it and see the underside would aid identification.
