Phlebia subceracea – Golden Splash Tooth

(Synonym Mycoacia subceracea)

On wet, rotting, native wood in forests, woodlands and parks. At first glance this species looks like a splash of gold paint on the underside of small, fallen pieces of wood. However, under a hand lens, the surface is seen as a layer of small, blunt, yellow teeth which retain their brilliant yellow colour even when dry.
