and another experiment at posting.
Description: a toadstool like form (woody looking stem arising from dead hakea trunk) cap is 7cm across, roundish, dark brown and with a significant depression or "bowl" in the centre. No gills but surface looked a little bit spngey.
Ought I cut it down the centre to have a close look at the inside structures?
One friend has said,
"I'm thinking a form of Polyporus, but not sure from then on in."
