White bracket with teeth

Please try to include photos to show all parts of the fungus, eg top, stem, and gills.
Note any smells, and associated trees or plants (eg oak, birch). A spore print can be very useful.

Hi Adam,

My best (only) guess on this would be a young fruitbody of Postia stiptica (or as it is now known Amoropostia stiptica) - But that one is usually only found with conifer?

Maybe there are other "Postia's" that would fit the bill?

Regards,
Mike.

Thanks both, I initially thought Postia but it has teeth, so a young Hericium cirrhatum looks a good bet!
