Forum rules
the Fungi for ID Forum rules,
in the interests of user safety we have applied the following rules to this form,

Please do not post any ID requests for the edibility or for "recreational" usage, in this (or any other) board,
identification of any fungi should not be relied on from this forum (or any other for that matter) to be totally accurate, as it is very easy to mistake any fungi for another one, especially from just a photograph alone, which could prove fatal to yourself if you were to eat the said fungi,
any posts we think may contain such requests will be removed,
and we ask all members to report any such posts should they find them here on the forum.

I found this in the old part of the wood this morning,
on an old and rotten log, no idea of what type of tree it once was i'm afraid,
it was soft and spongey to feel, but not squishy, if you know what I mean :roll:
the last photo shows the underside of one i detached, which looks to have pores ?

if the tree was a Birch, then I would go for the Birch Polypore in an early stage, but it does not look like Birch to me ?
not sure what else it might be other than that though ?

I have no idea of what sort of tree it might have been, it was well rotten and crumbly in most places, but a bit less so where the fungus was,
it could well have bee a birch, there are a few birches, but its mainly ash trees there,

Piptoporus does seem to be the most likely one I think,
as you say, its hard to say what tree it was from the photos.
