Fungi from the southern forests - Aurantiporus pulcherrimus

Aurantiporus pulcherrimus, Strawberry Bracket Fungus, Nevada Peak Track, Tasmania - 24th March 2008Aurantiporus pulcherrimus, the Strawberry Bracket Fungus. Found this one on a Myrtle (Nothofagus cunninghamii) just beside the track to Nevada Peak. I think I will track this one over the years. It must actually live inside this Myrtle, which is also carrying a few other parasitic plants, including some Native Laurel and Climbing Heath.
