Description:

Growing profusely on a fallen beech trunk.
Starting as a white blob they form a crust and bracket, looking like shells fixed to the wood.
I struggled to ID these. The last four images were taken yesterday, I wanted to check if they had a hairy top surface and it can be seen in the last images.

Identifications

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

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