Observation 8167: Laetiporus Murrill

This Bracket fungi is quite common in one particular area in this section of Comboyne. It seems to be a native to the area. I cant remember seeing it elsewhere.
The colours are similar top and bottom and there is no definate pore physical shape. The under-surface seems to be very plain and almost smooth. It grows to quite a large shape with adjoining bodies. (15-25cm)It is rather leathery and lasts for many months during the spring season here.

Recognized by sight: It does not appear to be L.sulphureus, but Australia may have completely different species than I do in Oregon, USA.

Google for Laetiporus sulphureus to see if you recognize it from pictures of younger fruitbodies. I can’t come up with any other suggestion for the moment.
