Author's notes

Photos 1-3: Found growing at breast height on a burnt but still living trunk. About 200 mm diameter. Thick white flesh, very hard. (We had to hack a bit off with a knife) There was no stain where cut. Smell was faint and unpleasant. (Not curry and not field mushroom.) My suggestion for ID based on: .......... https://canberra.naturemapr.org/Sightings/4230746 ......... https://www.projectnoah.org/spottings/11532615 ............. Photo 4: About 10 meters off the ground on a burnt trunk, This is older, I think, and attaining the polystyrene like texture seen here: https://canberra.naturemapr.org/Sightings/3768975 ...... Photo 5: Here we have a pair who have grown out of this roadside trunk since it was cut down (spores facing down.)
