Dear All,
Pls help me in the identification of these fungi. It was a dead stump of Ficus tree infested with termites. On the surface Daldinia (brown irregular balls) and this cream yellow member of Polyporales was growing. I am not sure about this but I think it can be Peniophora.
For the other one, Daldinia pls help in the identification of species. It may be Daldinia concentrica.
Place: Delhi University Campus
Date: September 2009
Daldinia  is known by several common names, including King Alfred's Cake, cramp balls, and coal fungus, is a member of Xylariaceae (Ascomycetes).

Dear Inderjeet Ji,

The First to images seems to be of Daldinia but to confirm it to D concentrica just you have cut in to have this specie has a diagnostic concentric growth ring like formation. If you find there is concentric ring this is undoubtedly D concentrica, but quit hard to determine from outside.

The next two photos of the white fungus growing on the bark surface seems to be Corticium galacticum commonly found growing on the surface of decorticated wood.

The polypore member can be some species of Ganoderma hope the upper surface of the basidiocarp is maroon in colour as it seems partially.

Regards

Tanay

Inderjeet ji and Tanay ji
 
First one the black ascostroma as Inderjeet ji identified it is Daldinia concentrca for the sure.
 The second one may be Corticum or Irpex ?
 
For the third one the basidiocarp it seems to be Auricularia sp? The Jeus ear fungi.
Although some times with the fungi only the specimen itself not the photographs help in identification.
Satish

Dear Tanay and Satish ji,
Thanks for giving some clues. But the third one is not Auricularia. It is not even Ganoderma. The fruiting bodies are thin and of the same colour as the undersurface.I am attaching photo of upper and lower surfaces.

This seems may be Microporellus obovatus.

Dear Satish Ji,
Your suggestion Microporellus obovatus (Syn: Polyporus obovatus) as seen from the key provided by Mushroomexpert.com is said to have zonate basidiocarp but the photos Inderjeet Ji, I find this key character is missing !! Hence not very sure about the ID. Correct me if  am wrong
Regards
Tanay
