Amauroderma rude – Red-staining Stalked Polypore

On very rotten logs, stumps or buried wood in native woodlands and forests. The young cap of this hard woody polypore is finely velvety with concentric zones of brown. The most distinctive feature is the bright red stain caused by rubbing the pale pores. The pores extend part way down the central, brown stem.
