Berkeley's Polypore:

Warning: This species is non poisonous and considered edible, however people have said it's as tough as shoe leather, and more mature bracts have a bitter taste. It is similar to other non edible bracts, so beware.

Habitat: This fungi is a parasitic species that rots the stumps of living Oaks, and other hardwood trees. They grow in woodland and hedgerows where hardwood trees are present.

Comment: Common in woods in the British Isles, where hardwood trees are present.
