Mushroom ID request

Recommended Posts

Hello fellow mushrooms aficionados. I took a short hike through the woods today and came upon various mushrooms. I carry a mushroom identification guide in order to be able to identify the mushrooms that I come upon but I'm not 100% sure if I made a correct identification. 

Location: Eastern Europe, deciduous forest, limestone soil.
The mushroom has tubes not gills, it's funnel shaped, grows on fallen branches, has a strong 'typical' mushroom smell, it's smooth at touch. It's been eaten by insects that also made those tubes their home. 

I identified them as Laetiporus Sulphureus also known as chicken of the woods but I might be wrong.

I can say with confidence this is not Laetiporus sulphureus, nor is this any other species of Laetiporus. However, as is often the case, it's easier to say what some mushroom is not, then to actually ID it.

Two species to check are Polyporus craterellus  http://mycoportal.org/portal/taxa/index.php?taxon=385259   and  Polyporus tuberaster   https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Polyporus_tuberaster  .

Possibly there are European species which I am unfamiliar with.
