Additional Information

Bracket Fungi, any of about 1,000 species of generally tough or woody fungi named after the bracket-like or shelf-like shape of their fruiting bodies, or basidiomata. They are also called pore fungi because the fruiting surface, or hymenium, lines the inside of the often irregular pores on the undersurface of the basidioma. The basidioma in some species is as wide as 15 cm (6 in) and varies in colour from grey or brown to bright orange or yellow. The basidiomata of some large bracket fungi also extend as cap-like structures on stalks.
