Laccocephalum hartmannii – Chestnut Polypore

Usually on the ground, in litter at the base of eucalypt trunks. When mature, this fleshy polypore has a velvety, chestnut-coloured cap which often cracks when dry to expose bright mustard-yellow flesh. The velvety brown stem is thick, woody and furrowed. Minute pores are white to cream.
