Author's notes

Several Tramtes(?) fungi were on the wooden steps approaching the lookout. They may have been old as they were looking faded and some looked like animals had nibbled them.

A couple look a little greenish near wood. A number of Trametes species have zones of short, densely-packed hairs on the upper surface of the bracket and these can be very good at trapping algal cells. So you may see algal growth on a Trametes, usually more concentrated near the middle of the base (being the oldest part of the bracket and so the algal cells have had more time to reproduce themselves there).

Hi Heino1, Many thanks for that information. I did notice densely packed hairs but I was not sure if that was just a fungus on the fungus. I am really glad you let me know what it actually was. Always happy to find out more information. Many thanks for taking time to leave the comment and for confirming the sighting. All the best
