Small woody bracket polypores spotted on fallen native she-oak, a species of casuarina tree. Diameter of largest specimens approx. 6 cms. Top of brackets banded, mostly brown. Large, deep, and irregular pores which are darker beneath each bracket, with paler sections which look almost melted in appearance.
