Bracket fungus

Trametes sp

Description:

Huge one - some 60 to 70 cm in length at the longest spot, about 30 cm tall. Several lumps develop upon one a top of another. Upper surface brown, without algae, but covered by moss. Pores are whitish and angular, becoming elongated with maturity and approaching a tooth-like.

Habitat:

Urban environment, growing on a stump of a fallen tree; close to forest and other wooded areas, and a town park.

Notes:

I believe this is a species of T. gibbosa or Lump bracket fungus; Tramète bossue in french.
