Mushoom Identification

Can anyone please identify this mushroom type?

I found them growing on dead tree stumps of either Birch or Oak.
At first I thought it to be Chicken of the Woods, but that only grows on living trees.
As per my Fungi Identification Book, it's a Tiered Tooth, edible, but very rare.
It is porous, not gilled, underneath, smells fantastic.
The Section has a similar white hew throughout, the surface looks like it's got meltec parmesian on top...
Thanks in advance.

Re: Mushoom Identification

No idea myself but do a search for "Pilzkontrolle" and your Kanton name and you may find a contact person to identify it for you. My Kanton used to have a Pilzkontrolle guy but they removed his salary from the budget. Maybe your's is still in business?

Re: Mushoom Identification

The general rule about "mushrooms" (Toadstools, Fungus etc.) is, if you don't see it for sale in a shop, treat it with great suspicion.
The other thing to do is to take it to an official check point for fungus (ger: Pilzkontrolle) for identification.
Where, incidentally, is Konwileggdorf (your given location) ?

Edit: Patxi types quicker than me.

I think it is this one.

I wouldn't eat it, I just like to look at those.

Re: Mushoom Identification

Dryad's saddle has very marked darker scales on top, and little smell- grows on trees and is very tough. This is 'pied de mouton' - off to check latin and English name- back in a mo..

... name had slipped my mind- it is hedgehog fungus, or hydnum repandum - Google it, you can't go wrong on this one. We always scraped the 'needles' at the bottom with a sharp knife before slicing and cooking (in a little butter and olive oil - some people prefer to par boil for a minute or 2 first- I don't)- as the little 'needles' come off when tossing in the pan and make the dish look messy. Enjoy.

Re: Mushoom Identification

Brilliant Odile, thanks. Thanks to all for some great information and giving a response.
Too high for dog pee John H. However that would be good for my skin.
