Powdery tree fungus(?)

Observed: 26th April 2013 By: psibrid
strange fungus

I'm assuming this is some kind of fungus.
If lightly touched a "dust" would visibly emanate - which I'm assuming are spores. Reasonably solid, although had the texture of chocolate truffles covered in coco powder (excuse my complete lack of scientific jargon here - but that's the best description I can give).
Was found growing on a dead tree in woodlands.


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

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