Sarcodon Scabrosus.... possibly! by 

Not a hundred percent sure of this I.D. but it was the only one that fitted its description. Found this Morning while out in the woods. It was growing on a dead oak limb.

I am a 53 year old ageing Hippy with a love of nature . A romantic at heart but sadly single. I used to be a decorator but since my father became ill I have given up my business to care for him full time . When I have time to myself I like nothing more than to get out into the woods or the countryside and capture the sights around me. I hope you enjoy seeing what I see. Thanks for viewing. Kind regards Mark.

    Fantastic Mark, you do seem to find some nice ones

  • It takes a lot of searching of the beaten track. I love getting out into the wilder areas where people seldom go. Thanks Lynn.

    I don’t care much about the proper name…this is so cool…so different from anything I’ve seen before :-)

  • I wish they would give them more interesting names. All this Latin just confuses me. Thanks Rusty.

    This is so pretty! It looks like it has petals like a flower.

  • Many thanks Mischa it does have that flower look to it.

    Not sure on the ID yet…I feel like I should know this one but it just isn’t coming to me. I think the Sarcodon scabrosus has a really tough almost woody cap that’s cracled and scaled looking? I might be thinking of the wrong species…..ugh
    Wish I could help more here Mark (too much coffee today I think)

  • I think I have found it, see what you think. It took a while but this one looks very similar. Thanks Carla.

  • I just checked this out[ winter-polypore ] on another site and it doesn’t look any thing like it so some one has got it wrong. I give up! Its so frustrating when this happens.
