Thank you Martin. Will make the picture you miss in short and add it to the observation.
Very nice. Being from the states, the only thing I could ask for would be some photos of the adjacent landscape. Thanks for a the great photos and description!
The substratum has proved to be Phellinus ferruginosus not Inonots sp.
