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.
Do you know the type of tree it might have been? It looks more like a Phellinus to me.
I am afraid i dont know the type of tree. It was in reclaimed land where trees have grown on silt from gravel pit workings over 60 odd years. I was told that a lot of alder grow there.
I should perhaps say that the guides showing us around the reserve called it a Horseshoe Fungus but i couldn't find anything called that. The tinder bracket fungus looked closest to me.
Horseshoe fungus and Tinder bracket are the same thing
I guess it is most likely Tinder Bracket then
