Stereum hirsutum group – Hairy Curtain Crust

On dead wood, cosmopolitan. Growing in tiers, the upper surface of this soft, leathery, shelf-like species has a dense covering of hairs over concentric zones of pale yellow and orange-brown. The lower surface is smooth and coloured in zones of pale yellows and browns with a yellow, often frilly margin.
