Various deciduous broadleaved species.
Found from the base of the tree up in to the crown. Usually located on sites of wounding / damage – principally, tear-outs and pruning wounds.
Annual. Typically, off-white and somewhat slippery (greasy) to the touch when younger. Matures to sometimes form a golden-brown upper surface. Pore surface is white, and pores are generally quite circular. White spore. White flesh.
Trametes gibbosa (hard and woody); Trametes suaveolens (smells of aniseed).
This fungus is normally isolated to already-damaged areas of the tree, though no research has been undertaken on the pathogenicity of this fungus. Presence at the base of the tree and along the main stem may warrant hollowness investigations , should a target exist. Little research has been undertaken on this fungus and understanding is borne near-exclusively from anecdotal observation.
