Bracket Fungus

Hymenochaete luteobadia


These were uniformly orange in color with a white ring around the outer edge. The bottom was a very light orange or white.


This row of fungi were growing on a dead fallen tree in permanent shade in the Amazon rainforest of SE Ecuador.


This was my first attempt to photograph the bottom side with a mirror. I can see where a good bottom photo could be necessary and will work on that in future shots.

Hi Mauna. Looking up the classification for the newest fungi, I see that the classification on the vertical fungi I just posted is the same as this one. I am updating this to your suggestion. You've made a couple suggestions I've used, if you want to make it official in the ID suggestion box, that would be fine.

Hi Tukup — no worries. Hope that the connectivity/internet issues resolve soon enough!

Hi Mauna. Just checking some of the spottings with comments. I checked back and I never got this notification. So sorry. I really appreciate your help with identifications. I will check out the links below. Thanks much. We seem to be having problems, but know that if I see it, I will acknowledge it. I'm not ignoring it :-)
