Firm dark blistery outgrowths on log surface with an orange crust (probably pore surface) forming plaques around some of them. The growths along the side and underside of the log were in smooth, hard folds with their flat fertile surfaces facing the ground.
The fertile surface was orange with minute pores. Margins were pale and free. This layer was missing from most of these fungal growths, probably eaten. It appeared to have been replaced by a layer of mucilage. The largest of these growths was about 55 mm wide.
Observed on a damp decaying and aged log (probably myrtle beech) which probably had not been moved for awhile. The log was lying across a narrow deep ditch and so the underside was not in contact with the ground.
Assistance with an Id would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
