Hi Mick,

It possibly is, though it's maybe not so jelly lke.  However it may develop 
that way.  It's a shame I can't upload better quality photos.

Regarding possibledamage to the tree, I accept that it is most likely to be a 
saprohyte, however as the fungus is covering the lenticels, will this have an 
effect on the underlying cambium?  Similarly, won't the fungus be removing 
moisture from the bark (and wood?)

Regards, 

Mike Charkow

Mike 

I saw something similar in Devon which I was advised was probably a Sebacina

This looks like a fungus I've seen in humid situations at the base of various 
species trees; if it is the same thing it is a harmless saprophyte.  Mind 
you, that is no the basis of a low-res photo...

I think this is some form of dry rot - do you agree? It was growing on two 
Lime trees under ivy. I didn't find any bark necrosis, though one tree has a 
small amount of sapwood delignification (possibly unrelated). Does anyone 
know the effects of this on trees?
