Recognized by sight: D. concentrica is often misapplied and it is not that common. Would have a look at this. Besides there is some Corticiaceae on this stick. Wood is?

not so good an idea here. I would have preferred as they do everywhere else in the world. Instead of just putting the genus’ name here it should say as it was in the beginning: DALDINIA SP. or DALDINIA SPEC. not just DALDINIA. This is confusing.

For moments I thought it could be something but Daldinia, after that I realized that you voted on Daldinia meaning it could be other sp…. all of them have those concentric zones?

If so, then I have another weird… growing on hedera: http://mushroomobserver.org/131580?q=1DOVl you should see that too.

No comment ;)

The micro would tell. And KOH extractable pigments.
We have at least 10-15 European species. The most common in Central Europe mainly on birch is D. petriniae. Your find isn’t that for sure.

What else could it be?

The branch was under a Acacia sp., probably the same wood… no I didn’t bring the branch (too large), but I have more photos of the corticium.
