Strange Fungi

Some two weeks ago I photographed these Fungi that were growing from a dead tree in the woodland that I walk regularly.
I have no idea what they are called, but they were massive (bigger than dinner plates) and some that I had not seen before. My research has drawn a blank on what the name for them is.





On returning recently I found that they had flopped over and looked to be dying.

  2. They look like Dryad's Saddles (Polyporus squamosus) to me. Hope that helps. Cheers, Stephen
