Old bracket on Ash

Recommended Posts

any help with this one would be much appreciated! found on a co-dom ash stem at around 4m. appears like it's been there for some time given the amount of moss on it and how hard/brittle it is. My amateurish guess is Rigidoporus but not sure if this appears on Ash at height?

Considered that but thought that was only ever at the base?

Not its usual M.O, but we've noted P. fraxinea at height on the trunks of Robinia and Beech, so not always confined to the basal region.

Wouldn't rule out Rigidoporous but would need to see a cleaner slice to determine colour/depth of the tubes.

thanks David, had a look through the AA fungi book and doesn't appear to mention perenniporia being at height hence my assumption.

don't think i'll be able to get a clearer picture of the flesh, is almost like dust now, it's that dessicated! if tree is retained might hopefully get a new fruiting body later this year to help make a more definitive ID,

 

cheers

Stop reading the fungi Id books as gospel 😜

 

Would have thought that the two years you spent with me being forced to look at each and every blob that looked vaguely like fungi would have instilled the knowledge that fungi don't read books, as such they live their lives vivaciously without a care as to what the authors & mycologists say they should be doing 😁

The AA fungi guide is potentially being updated to a larger format.

I’d forgotten how ubiquitous you were with that camera....I learnt loads fungi related but the old grey matter starting to leak a little now 🤕.

 

Does larger format mean more info or just a bigger book?
