Tony, is the group of yellow toadstools Pholiota aurivella? I have seen then exclusively on beech and was wondering about the decay as there is little literature.

Not to that extent, but this is G.pfeifferii. It is interesting how this bracket has 'callused' over on the left of the photo.

I think it is Nutty.
That would be on a Robinia though!

My lit. is also pretty barren on the subject but I would assume they're not far off P. squarrosa.

Nice bracket! Gano bodies have always reminded me of photos i've seen where slowing lava flows have met the sea and cooled in ridges.

That is interesting Tony- P. aurivella on Robinia. I have often seen it at 10m in cavaties on beech stems. The vagaries of tree/fungi interaction!
I know what you mean about Ganoderma brackets- it makes you wonder how old they are sometimes.
Here is the inside of an old Phellinus robustus bracket, where the age can simply be counted.

No point in starting a new thread, so here's some shots from today.
First two Inonotus hispidus on the same tree, running down what appears to be damage from lightning strike.
Tree is roadside, has been reduced/pollarded/topped (chose one to be comfortable with) 4 years ago.
Have arranged a Picus lite demo on it in a couple of weeks time, and will try and upload the findings.

Second set are (i believe) Perenniporia fraxinea.
The last one shows a close up of the bracket during sporelation.
This one is located on an Ash, leaning way from a path and wall, on the tension side of the root plate.

One more

Ganoderma adspersum (or is it G applanatum?)
At the base of a pathside Ash (again) on another suspected lightning stike.
There is also Daldinia concentrica further up the damage.
