Black bracket.

Black bracket.

Observation - Black bracket. - UK and Ireland. Description: A large, hard black bracket on a fallen Silver Birch. It detached easily and has what looks like a myxomycete growing on its underside, so is presumably dead. I have made a separate observation for the myxomycete on its underside.
