Re: Piptoporus betulinus

After the failure of my previous fungus (http://www.ispot.org.uk/node/321915) to attract any identifications, I honestly didn't think that either of the 2 fungi that I just uploaded would be identified, reckoning that perhaps these types of tree fungi were too difficult to specify from photos alone. I am now very pleasantly surprised. Many thanks Indeed!

Are there any good sources or keys for tree fungus identification?
