During the autumn months of last year, I came across this decent-sized sporophore of the blushing bracket (Daedaleopsis confragosa). From memory, this was a crack willow (Salix fragilis), though I honestly cannot remember. Regardless, it’s a very good example of what this fungus can achieve without being ‘bruised’ (where the bracket turns red on the upper surface). The heartwood of this host will be subject to a white rot. As a willow species, such degradation is not particularly favourable, as the wood is generally rather weak.
