Thanks gully.moy. Most of what I know about Fungi is from Project Noah and people like you who help. It's good to have an opportunity to discuss the various features of fungi - makes you want to learn more. I do appreciate your help and time !!

I see what you mean. I think you may be correct with Resupinatus. I am by no means a Crepidotus expert either just trying to help and learn :-)

Thanks for the suggestion gully.moy but all my sources on Aussi fungi suggest that it is a Resupinatus - I am just not sure about the species. I am by no means an expert on Crepidotus but I understand that they have eccentric stipe or point of attachment, if sessile. The entire fruiting body in my spotting hung totally free of the stem they were growing from.

I don't know R. cinerascens, but looking on Google, the flesh colour appears to be darker. Perhaps it's a Crepidotus species.
