I received a prompt reply to the email I sent this morning, from the mycologist who has identified numerous fungi over the years. It is ages since I have photographed or filmed fungi, (in March 2019 actually), but yesterday, as I set off on my walk, I noticed a bracket fungus on a small piece of broken off branch. It was in the park, on the other side of the road in front of my home. So I went inside to retrieve my camera. The email identified the fungus to genus. It contains 41 species which are widely distributed, especially in tropical regions.
