A large brown paper-thin fruiting body with a ruffled upper surface and beautiful white pore surface (underside) arising from a damp log. The fruiting body had a very short stipe.
Spotted in a temperate rain forest.
My thanks to John Walter for the ID and information highlighting differences between Podoscypha and Cymatoderma.

  1. John Walter  Hi Leuba, this looks more like Cymatoderma elegans, it has much larger funnels than the Podoscypha and the wrinkled white underside is not seen on the Podoscypha

    • Leuba Ridgway  Thanks again John. It's so good to have the added information. Love the dramatic underside and so pleased to have one I've never seen before. Sorry I couldn't amend the ID sooner.
