Resupinate disc fungus

Description:

Small resupinate fungus on a wet eucalyptus twig.
Approximately 8mm diameter.

Habitat:

In very wet and sandy soil in an open eucalyptus dominated forest. National park.

Notes:

As much for the geometry as anything because only one picture worked out. Top view is lost but was a shallow white dome. If any stipe existed it was extremely short. Note some bitten holes.

Thanks Neil and yes Jae it could well be. Definitely good similarity with gills but without spore or microscopics I'll just have to accept it as a nice pic.

Beautiful spotting, Mark. An unusual species.

Nice one, Mark! Perhaps these are Crepidotus fungi, no idea which species though. I did read that there are several that are saprobic on eucalyptus wood.
