Tinder fungus in Burnham Beeches
The Tinder Fungus or Hoof Fungus (Fomes fomentarius)is a bracket fungus. This is growing on a dead beech trunk. "Tinder" because it has been used as tinder for thousands of years; its Latin name just means "Tinder used for tinder". "Hoof" because the shape is like the hoof of a horse.
