Wierdo "Red shroom" Melbourne Australia
    #2750991 - 05/31/04 10:46 PM (12 years, 6 months ago)

My mate found this very strange looking 'shroom' the other day, growing on a wooden step in a large pretty densely treed/ grassy park in Melbourne (Australia)... not really a shroom, is it even a fungi, is it be a 'protist' of some sort ? {{Subsequent edit; I'm told it's 'definitely some type of polypore'...}} Odd 'spongy' consistency, looks like it came from the SEA... I'll post more info'/ better pics later...

Peace, love and organic brown rice...

or could be fistulina hepatica

G'day Eric/ Fezza, I suspected some peeps in here would be able to set me on the right track! Cheers.  Wise suggestions fez, I'm now thinking it might be Piptoporus australiensis based largely on your suggestion, the info/ pic at
http://fungimap.rbg.vic.gov.au/fsp/sp040.html
and a bit of reading about polypores...
The Australian distribution (Victorian coast) matches nicely, and I love the common name... CURRY PUNK! :grin:
