Stereum ostrea

Stereum ostrea

Description:

More fungi I know... but this is the biggest and best stack of S.ostrea I have ever seen. Clean and colourful the whole stack covered almost 1.5 metres of a vertical but dead, mossy tree stump.

Habitat:

Dense eucalyptus rain forest; always wet; national park.

Notes:

Also known sometimes as 'False turkeytails' common in may parts of the world. They are 'thinner' and 'cripser' than Trametes versicolor - the true turkeytail fungus.
