Checking through a couple of books it may also be Enteridium Lycoperdon (no common name) that grows all year around on mixed woodland (esp Birch) and is inedible, so don't go making any soup lol!



Hi Rob
I looked at the Cauliflower thing yesterday and it looks to have burst and gone into a soggy mess. So glad I didn't bother making a sarnie out of it.

Definately Enteridium Lycoperdon then as they tend to rupture and look unsightly.

Hi Sid,
It definately looks like some kind of ink cap (family Coprinaceae) but I'd need to know what size it was and what sort of environment it was growing in to give you a better idea. It's a good idea to put something in the picture to give a sense of scale, eg a coin, or like John says, a photo can distort its size

Hi Sid,
It's Polyporus squamosus, commonly referred to as Dryad's Saddle, it grows in overlapping clusters and tiers on broad-leaved trees.
Sycamore, willow, poplar and walnut trees are all commonly attacked by this impressively large and attractive fungus, which is commonly referred to as Dryad's saddle. (A dryad is a mythical wood-nymph.)

In South Shields Asda this afternoon for "supplies" when I noticed that they have seeds on special offer, normally £2.99 a packet but doing any 3 packs for £4! Got myself wildlife mixture, cornfield mixture and woodland mixture which all contain native, wild plant varieties.
