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. PS: Jan 19, 2019 - Spotting species identified as Phaeotrametes decipiens. A native species, but no common name found. An excellent link -

Spotted with my PN buddies Shanna Bignell and Pamela Sai. Thank you both for such a wonderful day :-)

So do I. They do very well during the dry spells, of which we've had plenty of late.

Love those polypores!
