A reddish-brown smooth, moist fungus about 40mm across. The cap was slightly rubbery and shaped like a wide funnel with a deep red centre. The stipe was a dark brown and very distinctly different in colour to the underside of the fungus which was covered by a whitish "fur".
Growing from a piece of bark near a dead eucalyptus log. Area very damp. Spotted in a damp eucalyptus forest.
Also called Polyporus badius. Thanks to myxomop for assisting with an ID for this fungus.
