Can anyone identify this bracket fungus? Quite large about 20 cms wide with a small drop of red juice similar to that on a Beefsteak fungus oozing from it (see second picture). Growing about 6 feet from the ground on the trunk of a healthy-seeming oak.


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

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