Bracket Fungus on Tree Trunk, Balbirnie Park

My final post, for a while, from Balbirnie Park, is of some bracket fungus. Like the lichen, I’m no expert on fungi, so I’m unsure of the genus or species of this particular mushroom.

    • Thanks Jo 🙂 I think you are right Jo, I’m sure they are called filaments. I know you can use their patterns, shape and the way they connect to the main stem (I think that’s a thallus), to help identify the mushroom 🙂 But alas, you also need various other bits to, which I didn’t note down when I took the photo 😦

  1. I love to see all kinds of fungi, and there’s always so much around in autumn. I particularly like to see different types of bracket fungus, although I couldn’t name any. I love the angle from which you’ve taken this photo, Andy. The underside is so intricate and delicate. 🙂
