    Looks good for this tough polypore. The pores are easy to see (up to a couple of mm across) and with strong greyish brown colour. The pileus is zoned and hairy above. Found throughout Australia, often in drier areas.

    I'd been thinking Postia sp. and then I found Postia pelliculosa. It is normally white underneath but bruises to a pink or brown colour. I'm not confident in identifying it as such but it is something to go on.

    It looks a bit like Coltriciella dependens, which I saw for the first time last weekend, but that normally grows on the underside of logs with a small stalk so I don't think is right.

    Photo's taken this morning near Goondiwindi. Fungi on wood on the ground possibly an old wilga tree. The unusually wet winter is making for some interesting finds on the farm.

    Toni, if possible, could you please provide a little more information with some of these sightings? The more we know the more chance we have of getting you an identification :) You have some great finds by the way!

    Thank you, that's the very kind of info that will help someone ID this for you. Sadly I am still at a loss. I've been flicking through my references but while I've found several possibilities, none are exactly a match. If I don't come across it, someone will!

    Photo's taken near Goondiwindi. Fungi on wood on the ground possibly an old wilga tree. The unusually wet winter is making for some interesting finds on the farm. The majority of the fungi is on the under side of the log with very little exposed to the sun. The log has been turned over to show the lighter coloured under side. The larger fungi pictures is around 150mm long by 70mm wide.
