That looks like a lactarius of some kind. Not got my book out at the moment, but the central dip is common in that genus. Not usually nice to eat. The gills you photographed, with their depth, would be a good hint of how a parasol looks if white.

The first one is a very common birch tree bracket. Absolutely inedible. Will be hard in texture with an almost smooth underneath.

The bottom one  (the top two are the same thing I think but are different examples) is on Oak IIRC.

I meant the top two...the bottom one looks like sulphur tuft.

A rather mature birch bracket I snapped a couple of years ago. I'll go and see if it's still there.

Once used for sharpening razor blades (it's other name is razor strop!) and as kindle for starting fires. Otzi the 5,000 year old mummified man found in the Alps was carrying this.

I've no idea about fungus species but I'm admiring lots of great photos in this thread.

It's another great photo of piptoporus betulinus the birch polypore or birch bracket.

I came across these giants yesterday -  I measured the bottom one at about 55 cm at its widest point - the top one about 10cm wider.
Initial research suggests ganoderma applanatum - artist's conch. can anyone confirm or correct this?

I think it might be Hoof fungus.

And the shiny one may be Velvet Shanks

I'd say it was a horse's hoof fungus too.

Here are a couple of purple beauties that I found the other week:

It's that time of year again. Ideal conditions in the New Forest this week. Mild and damp.

In a wood not far from where I live, fallen and felled trees are left where they fall, so there is lots of dead wood where fungi flourish. This morning's snaps:

I can smell the damp woods just looking at these pics.
Can't wait to get a bit of woodland pottering done during half term.

OMG!  If I show this to my Mario he will be so jealous.  It has been a bad year for porcini in Kent, Surrey and Sussex and he is now banned from foraging in his ancestral woods (Epping Forest).  You get fined if they catch you picking there, now.   He blames the Poles.  And I expect they blame the Italians.
