Observation 20765: Hydnaceae sensu lato
When: 2009-04-29
No herbarium specimen

Notes: This toothed fungi was growing in the upper limits of a burnt out Eucalypt trunk. Fortunately I was able to break some away from the trunk and provide a better image than the ones where the fungi was in situ. The stem is also shown and is short as would be expected. I do not have a reference for this particular fungi that is predominately white. The piece I was able to break away from the surface of the trunk, was flexible but not soft. There was no identificable aroma.
Image (42618) fungi piece broken away from group, was about 5cm across.

I have selected the area that best shows the cap features. This image is reasonably sharp at 100% and shows a wavy, flat texture as Irene had noted.

Climacodon septentrionalis?

Does it even exist in Australia? Growing on eucalyptus?
This looks too small, too thin-fleshed and too smooth-capped, and there’s no surrounding subiculum.
