Gibbous Bracket

Monday Mushroom #33

The gibbous bracket - a largish, white bracket fungus of rotting long-dead timber. These photos were taken in winter, and there is a layer of ice on top of each bracket.

Like many long-lived white fungi, the gibbous bracket is often colonised by algae - responsible for the green flush on these fruiting bodies.
