shelf fungus

Stereum sp.

Description:

Stereum species are wood decay fungi that do not have tubes. They are simply small bracket-shaped membranes appearing on dead wood. The underside of the membrane contains spores but no ornament, i.e. gills, of any kind. Like most members in the family, Stereums lack clamp connection and have amyloid spores.

Habitat:

rainforest

Notes:

spotted this in Thaleh Ban National Park in Southern Thailand. I think its a species of bracket fungi but not 100% sure
