Microporus xanthopus – Yellow-footed Tinypore

On fallen twigs, branches and logs in near coastal northern rainforests. This paper-thin polypore is easily recognised by its funnel shape and yellow ‘foot’ (basal disc) attaching the central yellow stem to the substrate. The smooth shiny cap patterned in concentric zones of brown, yellow and black with a pale yellow margin. Minute pale pores extend down the stem.
