Incidentally, it is usually fairly easy to recognise an Inonotus species from the pores. When viewed from certain angles they have a silvery sheen, which they lose from other angles. I'm not sure if this is true for all Inonotus species, but it is certainly true of those I routinely encounter.

Very useful tip, thanks
The tubes totally collapsed when dried which is quite cool. Not sure if this happens with other poroids?

Indeed, that's very interesting. Once next year's crop comes out on the ash, sorbi and alders, I shall take a look.

Pardon my assumption that this was H. annosum, too. I was wrong. :D

Not an easy one to i.d. I am just happy I got there in the end.
