Fungi time

Our recent patch of of wet weather has fungi bursting out and one species Gymnopilus junonius or Spectacular Rustgill is very prolific in an area where a couple of wattles were previously located. This seems to be the perfect environment for this species which grows on decaying hardwood timber and in this case the dead roots of the wattles.

It is a relatively common species and has a large range throughout the world as well as most states of Australia.
