Notes: Unusual body shape & or multiple growths from the single body. Have included smaller specimems from same area that did not display this habit. The Multibodied fungi was soft to touch but firm, and I missed getting an underneath shot unfortunately. The largest example fungi was about 3.5cm across from base to furthest point away from the stem. It may be some type of polypore, but not sure as this is the first time I have photographed anything similiar.

Ian. That’s an interesting looking specimen.
Returning to Swans possibly in a few days if access is available. I did not think it is a fistulina, as I have photographed these before. This fungi was more in the shape of a polypore and the colouring similiar to that taken on by some polypores after heavy rains. I regret not taking an underneath view as I usually do. The colour as Danny describes it is more true to Redish Brown or Purple,than Fistulina red.. Because of the overcast conditions and much rain the colours are more contrasting than taken in open daylight and without the residual moisture.
Not that good on describing colors, but it does look like the color of deer liver.
Blood-red, on a tree. May be fistulina.
is key! can you go back?
