Found on dysfunctional or dead parts of the tree – including on aerial deadwood and emerging from stem wounds. Abundant on fallen beech, in many instances.
Annual cap. Emerging often in groups. A porcelain white with a varnished finish maturing to a soft beige-brown. Slippery to the touch, when wet. Brownish stem has a distinct ring. Unmistakable. Pseudosclerotic plates are a cinnamon orange colour.
Indicative of aerial deadwood or localised decay, when found on living trees. If fruiting from stem cavities, climbing investigations may be required, if there is a target beneath. Reports of this fungus being pathogenic from the Czech Republic exist though it is uncertain whether the attribute is accurately given – the term may have been used interchangeably with fungi that simply occur on living trees.
