These were on a well-weathered wooden power pole. The inset in Photo 2 shows a close view of a fruit body and you see red colouring along the apical groove. A similar colouration is visible in a number of fruit bodies. At the top left in Photo 3 you see dull reddish-crimson pigment exuding from a fruit body that has ben placed in a drop of potassium hydroxide. In this exudate and the spore features (colour, size and shape) this specimen matches that of sighting http://canberra.naturemapr.org/Community/Sighting/3378766, but in the latter I didn’t notice such a red colour in the groove. However, the apical grooves in the latter were more tightly closed. The red colour in the apical groove suggests the genus Rhytidhysteron.
