Mystery bracket fungi

Please try to include photos to show all parts of the fungus, eg top, stem, and gills.
Note any smells, and associated trees or plants (eg oak, birch). A spore print can be very useful.

Post by Jacobsae »

anyone help with ID. This bracket was on a fallen tree which I believe to be ash. Bracket fungi, orange felty top and pale pores which were oozing liquid. Measuring approximately 14cm across. Found September 2020 Surrey in woodland
