Vivid orange resupinate fungus


This strip of vivid orange fungus on a fallen branch was so eye-catching I had to stop the car and photograph it.  It was just SW of Gwernogle, so a central Carmarthenshire record.  It doesn't seem to match anything in Phillips, unless it is bright Stereum hirsutum.  What do people think?

  1. Thanks Sam ---- I think this is Stereum hirsutum in active growh, hence the vivid colour. Fungi can be confusing and, like us, change with age. Good hunting for 2018.

  2. Thanks Philip - what a prosaic result. Never mind. I'll keep looking when I'm back in the county.
