Pseudomerulius curtisii


Tags / Aspects



Brackets of up to 30mm wide. Very distinctive yellow gills with much crossing, meandering and very much darker towards the centre. Thin and leathery caps with a very dull ochre top. Caps seem to curl into wavy shapes as they get older.
These numbered about a dozen in a line on the side of a huge Pinus radiata log with Wicks nature reserve. These logs were placed in the area for landscaping purposes.
ID as in Fuhrer (2005) #281
Rarely found yet in Australia? and seemingly uncommon elsewhere. The best reference images I can find are with Renée Lebeuf from Quebec.

(need to add ' Pseudomerulius curtisii ')
