Observation 7994: Rigidoporus laetus (Cooke) P.K. Buchanan & Ryvarden
When: 2008-06-18
No herbarium specimen

Notes: These were too high in the tree for me to get a top shot, but you can just see the yellow colouring after close inspection.
The spore area had concave area and this was apparent all over the area.The surrounding area was subtropical. My ref Extract: Brackets to 100mm wide, radius up to 70mm, single or with few to several brackets arising from a broad base. This species is found on tree trunks, stumps and dead logs. Large fluid drops are frequently seen suspended from the developing pore surface. Spores c. 5 mico-m diam., globose to subglobose, smooth. Spore print cream-coloured.
(From the photos I took I must admit that I did not see any fluid drops but this may be because of the maturity of the fungi.)
