Description

Pic 1 shows the underside of the cap of this thick white fungus. The fertile surface showed closely packed white "teeth" instead of gills or pores. The teeth were decurrent ( running down the stem) -pic 4. The young fruiting bodies were growing in a clump with some of their thick white stipes fused together. The caps were a pale orange, distorted by mutual pressure and showed in-rolled margins. The stem turned a beautiful orange when bruised or cut.
Growing on a damp eucalyptus forest floor, among leaf and wood debris.

  1. Chris Lindorff  Hi Leuba. Great to have a photo of this species. It is a Fungimap target species. I have now added the name to the NS database. Cheers.
