An array of broadleaved species.
Restricted largely to the base of the tree at and around buttresses and the stem base – less frequently emerging from cavities along the stem. Also emerges from stumps.
Annual cap. Distinctly shaggy throughout form – can lose shaggy appearance when in exposed conditions. Rarely emerging singularly – generally in larger clusters. Whitish-brown colourations from inception. Underside of cap emerges with a web that breaks to form a ring on the stem as the cap matures. Spire cinnamon brown that stains the gills as cap matures.
Understood to be weakly to moderately parasitic (in addition to being more broadly a saprotroph) upon its host, wherein it is attributed with an intense white rot that begins as a selective white rot. Where colonisations are extensive and encircle the stem base, investigations into the structural stability of the tree might be required. Where crown condition is poor, the presence of this fungus indicates physiological dysfunction often caused by a wider array of issues.
