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.

Thanks, Gerardo,

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!
