Stereum ostrea (now versicolor) – Golden Curtain Crust

On dead wood in wet native forests. Large, thin, funnel-shaped fruit-bodies are often massed on fallen logs, and the exposed smooth lower surface glows golden in gloomy light. Coloured bands on the velvety upper surface grade from brown near the base through orange and yellow to a pale yellow margin.
