Neolentiporus maculatissimus – Austral Dryad’s Saddle

On dead eucalypt trunks and logs in high-altitude forests. This kidney-shaped bracket grows in overlapping tiers. Brown scales are arranged concentrically on a pale brown cap. The cream pores dry brown. The stem, if present is black and off-centre or lateral, but not easily visible amongst the caps.
