Ganoderma australe (syn G. applanatum)
Two lovely "southern brackets" found on a dead tree trunk. These were relatively small specimens, but the species has the potential to grow to a width of up to 600 mm. Here's a beautiful fresh specimen I found in Brisbane. Note the coloured bands - https://www.projectnoah.org/spottings/22... The rusty appearance is caused by spores.
Found on a dead tree trunk on the banks of Dalrymple Creek, along the North Branch Trail in subtropical rainforest. Cool, damp, well-shaded area. This area is known as the "Goomburra Section" of Main Range National Park. The park forms part of the Gondwana Rainforests of Australia World Heritage Area.
Lat: -27.97, Long: 152.35
