Mazegill fungi

Gloeophyllum sp.?


A species of Mazegill fungi, possibly Gloeophyllum sp. which is known to occur in Australia. This is without a doubt the weirdest bracket fungi I have ever seen, and I'm still scratching my head trying to figure it out. In parts it looks like it has melted, and out of the front face of the pores are growing blue-grey brackets. Photo 3 shows the top and side view, and the smaller brown brackets growing there, unlike the blue ones on the face. On the top of this mass and the other brackets the surface is banded and dark brown. Some of the brackets are very large, and there is also green slime growing on a couple of them.


Found in a local park amongst bushland in leafy suburban Sydney. These specimens were found on a dead tree stump along a creek course.
