Author's notes

About 25mm across, growing on bark of a live eucalypt (coast grey box). The underside looks like Haxagonia vesparia, but the upper surface is not the same as in our only photos of that species.

If you look at the Canberra site they have photos of H. vesparia which may be like the species you have photographed! I'll keep thinking on this one.

In literature this is recorded as a variable species. Though those very distinctive pores lead me to this id.
