Who: Paul Derbyshire (Twizzler)

No specimen available

These were in Zone 48: quite large brackets on a fallen branch of Betula papyrifera; the branch still had bark, and the fungi had ruptured it in emerging.

Soft and fleshy, unlike nearly all polypores, but pores rather than gills beneath. I could not break or tear a piece off — rubbery but tough and not fragile.

Suspect Fistulina on this basis, though the pores don’t seem to be the mouths of physically separated tubes.
