Observation 389231: Fomes (Fr.) Fr.

Growing on a tree stump which also had tinder polypores (Fomes fomentarius) growing on it. The cap measured 8.5 cm at its widest. This Artist’s Conk specimen is clearly very aged however I made a scratch on the pore surface which I believe is indicative of this species.


I made the test scratch seen in the middle
