Pycnoporus coccineus

Monday Mushroom #73

Pycnoporus is a genus of bright red bracket polypores with world-wide distribution, divided into species mostly by geographic region. This is Pycnoporus coccineus the native species from Australia and New Zealand.

It has an eye-catching bright red-orange colouration and is usually rather messy in form - sometimes looking more like a glob of putty than anything natural.
