Description

A number of fruit bodies, all growing on Kunzea tree trunks, in the same patch of bush as the darker specimen observed earlier (http://naturewatch.org.nz/observations/8998959). These are the more normal brown colour but smaller in size (to 8 cm across) possibly due to the very dry conditions prevailing at present.
