help identifying fugi

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.

help identifying fugi

Post by kierannimmo »

Hi all,

apologies for the "one crappy photo" I appreciate it's not of much use for identification, I took the picture long before it ocured to me that I could ask for help identifying, just very impressed with it's beauty.

I do wonder though, with a bit of background information, whether one of you may be able to provide something of a shortlist for me to cross reference?

I discovered the fungi in summer inside the burnt out hollow of an ash tree in south west UK. The caps messure aproximately 6 inches across
