Collection location: Swans Crossing State Forest, New South Wales, Australia [Click for map]
This fungi was in a very poorly lit area and I was forced to use flash to get the image.(hence the black b/ground.) I at the time did not get a shot of the underside, and I regret it now. I think it is a bracket fungi, but if anyone could put a name to it I dont think it would be challenged. The way the fungi is facing (towards the forest floor) is as it was found.
This second image was as I remember in the same locality. I am not sure if this is the same species, but the image is of better reslution and I believe a younger specimen of the original image uploaded.

Douglas, you might like to check out this added image. I found it whilst archiving.
Thanks for the reply. This Fungi was rather a large specimen, as big as your average mans hand. It was soft to touch and was very easily damaged. I presumed it was an aged specimen from my obs. Will have another look for it this season coming and also do count. Chow Ian
Need a shot of the fertile surface here, it can be too many things as it is.
The growth habit suggests Stereum to me, but would need to know size as well as have an underside photo. If sporocarps under 2inches in length, probably a Stereum.
