Common Split Gill Fungus on dead tree branch- 06 March 2017- Skaneateles, NY

I photographed this bracket-like fungus on a fallen branch at the edge of a melt-water stream, near the west shore of Skaneateles Lake. The stream-bed was eroded shale. This is in the Bahar Preserve of the Finger Lakes Land Trust.                                     The tiny fungus has a finely scalloped edge which curls toward the underside, and a fuzzy (tomentose?) upper surface. Thanks to those at The Maine Master Naturalist Program who looked at this and identified it as Schizophyllum commune, Split Gill fungus, and provided this link:
