Inonotus

Inonotus cuticularis was first described from Europe, but it’s a circumpolar species, found through Europe, Asia, North America, and a few in North Africa too. I grows on many kinds of hardwoods.

It does look like Inonotus cuticularis.
That must be a European species?
It seems like have alot of the same unique species here in New England.

A polypore, but not Polyporus

Looks more like an Inonotus to me. Possibly cuticularis – or whatever you might have over there in USA… Inonotus cuticularis grows on several kinds of trees, but it is always helpful to know what it grows on.
