Temperate rain forest, dead log.
I just 'blew-up' the few curled edges and there's no sign of hexagonal pores unfortunately. I think it's a mature Stereum ostrea. Lack of pores would prove that and it does look fairly smooth underneath. Sorry - a hex-pore would be a lovely find. Leuba literally bumped into one the other day and thought it was a wasp nest for a while :-)
Any other suggestions, Mark?
I think we'd need to see the pores to be sure of H tenuis. It's hard to find other records of that one in Tas.
Argy, this was spotted along the path that runs parallel to the Pieman river, which runs between Corina and the Savage River in the Tarkine. Everything along that walk was just spectacular.
Wow about all the colours - so subtle yet beautiful. Got to get back there soon.
