Description

Growing on the underside and sides of a rotting log in a native bush remnant. Mostly resupinate, but forming narrow, firm-leathery, shelves up to 14 cm wide on the side of the log which project out up to 35 mm and are up to 20 mm thick. Upper surface dark brown but with a wide, pinkish-white margin. Lower surface pinkish-fawn, covered with small pores (7-9 per mm) except for a narrow sterile margin. Fruit bodies readily sliced with a knife, context yellowish-brown overlying a chocolate-brown pore layer up to 6mm thick. Fresh fruit body with strong mushroomy odour.

Description

Soft white bracket on fallen beech, to 15 cm diam, fragile. Single layer of tubes. 6 pores per mm, sweetish smell, no taste. Tube layer to 1cm thick. Tissue dimitic, clamped. Spores hyaline, not dextrinoid 3um.
This is Tyromyces guttulatus sensu Cunningham, which is not the same as the northern hemisphere original (-Calcipostia guttulata). This is undescribed and perhaps related to Aurantiporus pulcherrimus. The genus Aurantiporus is probably not appropriate. The type species has not yet been sequenced. An appropriate genus is probably Pappia, based on P. (Tyromyces) fissilis, which is also related.

Description

Beautiful purple irregular velvety on the end of a log in a suburban garden.

Notes post-collection:

  • Fungus easily came away from log, like an omelette lifting off a frying pan. Did not take the whole thing but where segments removed, log looked as if nothing had ever been there; back of the fungus coated in the 'soil' of post-digestion matter.
  • Surprising texture, very much like an omelette, and easily torn apart but not falling apart. Not tough or woody.
  • Has strong odour, of mushroom, that acrid-mushroom polypore smell.

As seen, this one is competing with (or parasitising?) a hirsute Trametes or something, for which I made a separate record. It's here: https://inaturalist.nz/observations/128764180
