Ident help required on larch

Recommended Posts

Found this on Larch.  It's recent as the tree was inspected a few weeks ago.  Tree leans and its on the holding root side, doh!  Any thoughts please?  I was wondering if Griffola frondosa but possibly not frondy enough?

As soon as I see a fruiting body on conifer I think Phaeolus schweinitzii - the Dyer's Mazegill - though that one may be a bit lower on the tree than you might expect; typically they're found a few feet up and higher but not exclusively.  Could there be others higher in the tree?

 

Take a look in the Fungi Directory; a possibility?

This is a misleading comment (not having a dig) This is indeed Phaeolus but it is not limited to upper/basal areas, in fact quite the opposite, often fruiting from ground in its typical form, from sub surface roots. P schwienitzii is a heart rot fungus limited only to zones of the tree where heartwood exists and transfered (in low resistant species i.e Larix decidua) by root contact. It can be found from the sub surface roots to the upper scaffolds.
