Are these also bracket fungus? Not sure, because I didn't think brackets have gills... if mushrooms these were looking the worse for wear- I'm not sure if it's because they are deteriorating, but they appeared to have sawdust scattered across them- or is it simply wet spores?
One of the trees in our garden died last summer, and recently these have started appearing on the undersides of the larger branches.
Not sure if they are technically bracket fungus or not? similar in appearance, but don't attach to the bark in the same way... they're more like caps stuck on, and the squirrels dislodge them now and again.
Some sort of honey fungus here growing on what's left of an oak tree the council saw fit to take down a few years back.
I turned up home one day and it was half down when I ask the guys what the crack was he said it was rotten, I watched as the rest came down it looked solid all the way through to me.
Sodding council no notice of intent just cut it down. Aside from the acorns bouncing off the car roofs and the odd twig dropping off nothing a bit of TLC couldn't have sorted It would have had about a four foot diameter still there's two more left in the walk. 'slight rant over' ian
Looking at this fungi growing in a hollow of a tree, it looks to me like Turkey tails but i am sure it is not, maybe there are two types of fungi here - any ideas? Tree with hollow growing fungi by Helen Skelton, on Flickr
Walking through the woods and noticed on the old dead pine with the bees nest what looked like soot it feels like chimney soot very light powdery but not smelly, there's balls of it all round the tree and the odd bit of slime mold too. I've not seen it before but I'm guessing it'll be called sooty mold
If you look close you can see the filaments spreading out. The clumps range from an inch to 6 inch diameter ian
