Beats me too Isabel. I find bracket fungi, however large it is, rather hard to ID.
I agree with the mystified comments --- we need someone to take an interest in the huge variety of brackets and crusts! I think this is a Phellinus --- probably P ferreus (Cinnamon Porecrust) Buczacki p480 or Collins 'Sterry' p 282. I leave such things for those who anticipate a long life. They all have fascinating microscopy --- so no excuses.
Thanks both - my increasing facination with fungi is matched by my increasing frustration that I can't ID many! The fungi don't care though and I still get pleasure just from seeing them! Cinnamon Porecrust looks good to me though - I know where the branch is and will have another look with that species in mind!
