Yellowing Curtain Crust - Stereum subtomentosum
A small to medium bracket fungus growing to about 6 or 7cm. The edges in particular tend to show some yellow colouration especially when scored, sometimes has a green algae coat when mature.
Distinguished from the similar Stereum hirsutum by being joined to its host by only part of the width of the bracket, sometimes making a stalk-like connection. S. hirsutum brackets are connected along the whole width.
On the dead wood of broadleaf trees, often in well wooded areas.
All year round but best in autumn.
Widespread and fairly frequent in England and Wales.
Fairly frequent in Leicestershire and Rutland.
