Hi Simon, at first glance I'd assumed the same as you, given species and 
location;  but the top (not photo'd unfortunately) is smooth and yellow, not 
slightly scaly  like P squamosus usually is; and the underside pore layer is 
almost white.  The nearest thing I could find was another Polypore, P. 
varius; but this is apparently smaller than the bracket I saw. Re the season, 
it is so out of joint this year that I don't think that it precludes fruiting 
at odd times!

Have a great Christmas


Rupert

On elm I'd go for P.squamosus too, although it does have a yellow tinge.  
That might be the photo.

It is an odd time of year for it to appear, but the temperature is high for 
the time of year, the grass is still growing round here. Fungi seem less 
bothered by the time of year than other organisms, this pic is from April 
2011 when there was a massive fruiting of Laetiporus at the same time the 
bluebells flowered.
