White spore print and white rot caused. I shall upload my field guide pictures in a few days from now. The last photo is of the same group of brackets after a 3-5 day drier weather.

Do you have any way of posting the image and accompanying description from your field guide here?

Agreed on pictures from Google, but my field guide has a photograph looking very very similar. My field guide also states that this fungus is frequently found and dead acacia an eucalyptus trees. It causes white rot of the sap wood. I did not check for white rot. These specimens were found on eucalyptus trees. The trees have been in a fire and they have dead pieces in them.

I have not checked the under side but will do so and post more photographs. I must add that we have had a lot of rain (2 – 3 weeks)and there are may active growing fungi around.

why?

the one image I can find of T. cingulata online bears little resemblance to yours. the original IF citation reads:

cap thin, corky, kidney-shaped, often zonate, finely pubescent; stipe lateral, disciform; dot-shaped, minute pores, entire edge obtuse.

on dead wood, east India, Soane River, cap whitish, yellowish zonate, 6-12cm long, 2-3mm thick; pores 200-250 μ in diameter. (emphasis mine)

how did you reach this determination? is there a photo in your field guide for comparison?
