Monday Mushroom #16

Maze-gill - Daedalea quercina
Bracket fungi often grow outwards and downwards producing a series of contour-lines as they expand from their leading edge. Where several brackets overlap, they often produce really beautiful, organically flowing forms.

But the Maze-gill is named for the equally wonderful patterns that develop beneath the contoured cap - the fungus on the right has been turned over to reveal this labyrinthine underside.
