The Jury is still out, but after seeking advice on this unusual image, have gone for underside of Altocumulus Castellanus or possibly Stratocumulus with sinking pockets giving the mamma impression. It was taken in Brighton some years back, and appeared ahead of a storm, “looking quite spooky with the light filtering through”. Answers on a postcard please. Update: Following receipt of further information, this image can be classified as Mammatus as it does occur in conjunction with lower clouds as well as CuNimb anvils.
