    It shows up every year on an old beech tree in our yard that has a big crack in the trunk.
    Last year we finally decided to taste it. It really seems like an alternative to seafood. Sautéed with butter, it tasted like scallops.

    Good morning Nik, they sell this grated and dried at health food shops; increases oxygen to the brain they say. What a weired looking mushroom though!! Do take a photo of it on the tree next year? I bet it looks quite alien!!
