Author's notes

These are the fungus that I mistakenly thought were the same as the previous sighting posted. These though are on a peppermint gum. Note some old black ones from a previous year ...

It's amazing the range of fungi you are finding on your place. I can see with all the challenges the folk in Budawang Nature Map are giving me with unusual polypores that I'm going to have to try and locate a polypore specialist for some guidance - unfortunately they are few and far between! The key I have starts off with spore characteristics - bit hard to determine from a photo............... So I have to jump ahead and try and eliminate the different genera. So please excuse me if I'm slow and still may also come up with the wrong answer! Yikes!!

So are the spores visible in the underside or top side textures ... so in the gills or as here in the more sponge-like underside? I ask whether 'top side' too because one or two of the latest fungi have had a quite 'bubbly' topside. Although I don't have a ladder tall enough to get close enough for you on this one anyway, I'm afraid ...

BTW the horse-dung fungus has grown a fair amount though appears now to be under attack from perhaps wombats, as the outer top layer has been shaved off - just keeping you posted on your old friends!!

This fungus has got quite a bit bigger ...

A couple of species that I had a look at ,Laetiporus portentosus and Ryvardenia cretacea both fall off the tree when over mature. As this is not happening I'm still stumped!

Spores are minute and so it's only if a whole lot of them fall together that you can see them and their colour. The spores in polypores are formed in the 'tubes' (or sides of gills if a gilled fungus) that go back into the fungus from the underside. The little (in most cases) holes you see on the underside of polypores are called 'pores' and this is where the spores come out when released from inside the tubes. Sometimes if you're lucky you will see a fine dusting of colour (rather than texture) on the bark, leaves or other objects that may be directly below the fungus. And yes sometimes those spores will get caught in air currents and deposited as a blush of colour on the upper surface of the fungus. Afraid...rather sensible in my book. I'm not overly fond of going up ladders if they're taller than me!!!

With that 'horse-dung' fungus they erode from the top as their way of releasing their spores. These mature spores will appear like a dusty deposit on thar eroded surface and now is the time you can make a definite id of the species! If that spore mass is brown then it's
Pisolithus marmorata, which I think I called it originally. I was talking to a fellow recently that has studied our Australian species of this genus and he gave me this information. He also said if they were a curry colour it's P. albus. So now you'll be able to tell me which species you have!!

I now have more photographs of the same type of Polypore as at the top of this page. But this has grown from the dead trunk of a burned gum in an entry where I referred to it as an extruded fungus. I think that since we didn't come up with a distinct name for that one, I will put the new photographs on that same entry. Still having some uploading/saving problems here, so bare with me ...

And more again ... which I will add to an early sighting of fungus which was old and you felt you couldn't identify ... take a look ... I am sure you will get a notification of this when I add some more photographs and information ..!
