Looks a pretty decent shout Mark, certainly 'visually'


Just wondering if you noted if the top surface scratched easily, leaving a yellow residue?

Red banded polypore found this winter in Slovenia....second pic is a dead fruiting body


Nice !


Central & eastern Europe seems to be a hot bed for the species compared to here in the UK.

Nice shots of F. pinicola there! The Gano on Sorbus is perhaps more likely to be Ganoderma australe, though you'd need to do the scratch test, push test, and light microscopy test for exact confirmation!

What's the push test? I scratched it this morning but it was dark by the time I got back, so haven't looked yet.
