Have you looked at Lumpy Bracket, Trametes gibbosa?
I think that's a good shout! ;)

Cheers Chris - you are correct!
And the fact was amply borne out yesterday, when I was trying to get the exposure right in order to photograph this: -

Re: Fungus Identification - Help ............

Hi, I have to admit that some of the shapes of what remains do look a bit odd for L.sulphureus , but I still think it is the very old remnants of that species' fruitbodies. I stand to be corrected if anyone can confidently suggest otherwise, but I can't think what else it might be. As Adam mentioned...

Re: Fungus Identification - Help ............

Hi, and welcome to UK Fungi. I'm not 100% certain, as your fungus looks to be well past its best - but I think it's probably Laetiporus sulphureus , (Chicken of the Woods). That species often grows on Yew (and on deciduous trees, though very seldom on other conifer species), and I have seen very old...

Re: tiny 3mm diameter white fungi on mossy oak branch

Hi, There are over 1000 records (which is quite a reasonable number, comparatively speaking) for Phloeomana minutula , on the Fungal Records Database of Britain & Ireland, but under one of its former names - Mycena olida . (It's always useful to search for synonymy with fungi names as nomenclature c...

Re: tiny 3mm diameter white fungi on mossy oak branch

Could be something like Phloeomana (Mycena) minutula , but there are several of these small whitish bark inhabiting mushrooms, and characteristics such as stipe attachment, gill numbers and spacing, etc. etc. would all be needed. (As would microscopy in all probability, to be anything like confident...
