Hi Vasko,

Most probably Bondarzewia mesenterica (Schaeff.) Kreisel (= Bondarzewia montana (Quél.) Singer). Without any additional information from your side, the ID specification is a tip only. This species is growing on coniferous wood (I guess there's a conifer on your pic, unfortunately not told directly), on Abies sp. and Picea sp., always in the root zone. Distribution: Europe, North America, temperate Asia, mostly hemiboreal, boreal and subalpine zone, where its host trees live.

Photographically: the scene isn't bad, but the white balance seems quite incorrect, there's a pale blue filter on the pic, while 1/20 seconds were IMHO a bit too slow, a minor camera shake may be detected. Well, maybe next time!

Best regards, László
