Observation 7613: Ganoderma P. Karst.
When: 2008-05-29
No herbarium specimen

Notes: The first time I photographed this Bracket fungi it was “bright white” with a bleeding blue band visible. I was unable to identify the fungi other than it was a Bracket Fungi. I returned about three weeks later and the second image was taken. As can be seen the fungi had taken on a comlplete colour change. Careful inspection will show where the blue band existed. I have not seen this before. When this last shot was taken there had been some rainfall to darken the colour. A later photo shows light chocolate brown.
