The black footed polypore gains it’s name from the black stipe supporting the fruiting body. It’s a saprophytic species growing on dead hardwood. This quite large and colourful fungus has not previously been reported on campus so I was excited to see several fruiting bodies together on 13th September 2018. All had been disturbed and lifted out of the substrate – no idea whether this was by an interested person or by animals.
