Observation 44907: Polyporales sensu lato
When: 2010-04-08
No herbarium specimen

Notes: I have photographed this bracket fungi before (in about the same position),with out a successful naming. I now have found a reference that is very close, & close enough for me to put forward.
The front bodies are growing to about 100mm thick,(high). It is rather a spectactular fungi with a soft stem, and tiers of velvety lobes with varying colours above and under the specimen.(Pink orange yellow & white.)
It was found on a very old and huge(lopped), tree (stump). The axe marks can still be seen.

Definitely a polypore

The images show a fruiting body with pores. Podoserpula pusio doesn’t have pores (or gills or teeth) and is morphologically different from the images shown. Polyporales is correct as a tentative ID. The description given doesn’t appear to me to match the images shown.
