Black Tooth

Phellodon niger


A leathery, thick fruiting body with frilly greyish-white margins. The centre of the caps were dark, almost black and looked silky. The largest of these caps were about 50 mm wide.
They had short stipes and the underside was a grey-lilac colour with minute densely packed teeth (pic 4)


Growing on damp sandy soil in a reserve of mixed natives.
Not an Australian native it seems.


The caps in this species can be simple or funnel-shaped. Dried caps are said to smell distinctly of Fenugreek.
Family: Bankeraceae
