Author's notes

Not sure if you can do anything with this Pam but thought you might enjoy it anyway! I spotted this from the outdoor dunny! White fungus, apparently oozing or at least squeezing out from the inside of the bark of a burned tree stump. Very solid and white but smooth - not noticeably textured in any way.

There are a few possabilities! The one on the upper left looks like an old dried up one whereas the one on the lower left, and some small ones that have that slightly darker margin appear to be growing. I'm hoping that they will grow a bit more and give us some more characters to go on. Good to see not all fungi are taking a break now as we come to the end of the main season. Thanks for sharing.

No, there are still many small toadstools about and the turkey tails are still looking very vibrant and healthy and as I mentioned somewhere yesterday, there are still plenty of Birds Nest fungi in the vegetable garden. Did you see that I added a new pic to the unidentified Bolete? One I accidentally knocked off ...

Have these little white brackets developed any further?

Here are some updated photographs but I ran out of my allowable number of pictures so have deleted a couple too ... The extrusions have definitely got larger and now you can see the pattern underneath the larger ones. Interesting how they grow around the grasses etc. Actually I have taken more photographs of another toadstool today which has also grown around the grass ... nearby to this ... should I put these up too?!

So, original photographs are 4 June, I am now uploading more if I can, which show that they are just like the Polypore on the tree I had to climb up a ladder for ... aren't they? Same tree too, I believe ...
