Dear Gerardo,
it is wonderful to have your input on Neotropical Polyporales. Even though it is almost impossible to identify Neotropical species on picture only basis I much appreciate to exchange thoughts. Such allows a much better understanding.

For this reason I look very forward to your further comments on this website. It would be great if you could share your knowledge and expertise. Muchas gracias.

This species was growing on a small twig, unfortunately I did not make a cross-section. I just can only guess it was resupinate. The growth form displayed on the second stick (out of focus in the background) would support this.

Thanks so much.
Susanne

Hello Suse, I´m Gerardo from Argentina
A beatifull and amazing polypore
I never saw that shape.
The close up suggest me Ceriporiopsis, a resupinate genus of polyporaceae S.l.
I imagine that it is growing around a small twig…
However if this “columnar shape” is the real basidiome shape…..WOW!!!
I never saw that!

suse…
