These are tiny in size, about 3mm, growing on a fallen tree. I have no idea which specie this is.

  1. Probably a Trametes gibbosa, commonly known as the 'lumpy bracket'. In Dutch 'witte bultzwam'.

    1. Thanks, based on the other photo you posted of this fungus, I'm pretty sure this is the same one. Posted 10 years ago
      1. Ferdy, this is an old story, 2 years old, but while browsing the site checking if the bracket fungi I captured yesterday is listed, I noticed this photo. I think it is Trametes hirsuta - Hairy bracket

        1. That may be entirely possible, Jivko. As I am learning more about fungi, I'm also learning that some of my older identifications are incorrect. I have already fixed a few, but I probably still have some incorrect ones. Thanks! Posted 8 years ago
          1. This is the situation with all of us, Ferdy. But I see we all are very good students... -:) Posted 8 years ago

''Trametes hirsuta'', commonly known as hairy bracket, is a plant pathogen. It is found on dead wood of deciduous trees, especially beechwood. It is found all year round and persists due to its leathery nature.
