Mini Ping-pong bats

Dictyopanus pusillus

Description:

Tiny bracket fungi described as "mini ping-pong bats" in serried ranks on the bark of a giant gum tree. The colour of these fungi was pale cream with a slightly darker cap. Stems appear to be lateral and the underside had large pores.

Habitat:

Tall Eucalyptus forests

Notes:

These fungi are attractive in their appearance and arrangement on the tree trunk. I apologise for the quality of the photos-could not get a proper foothold along tree base to get close enough. I am hoping my ID for this fungus is accurate - the description and distribution seem to fit... have replaced two photos with others I just found .
