Please try to include photos to show all parts of the fungus, eg top, stem, and gills.
Note any smells, and associated trees or plants (eg oak, birch). A spore print can be very useful.

Very hard fungi found on decaying eucalyptus tree. Very hard cracking black top with large redish brown ring which looks like a giant fat catapiller! Anyone know what this might be.the tree is still alive but looking poorly.

Hi, and welcome to UK Fungi.

Apologies, but there is currently an ongoing problem here on UK Fungi, with multiple image uploading.

Please see: -
viewtopic.php?f=2&p=9685#p9685

If you decide to re-upload your missing images, please ensure that you follow the method described in that post. - Do not in any way edit your post, add further text, or preview the post, between adding the attachments, and clicking on the "Submit" tab. - And once successfully submitted, don't edit the post thereafter, - or the images in that post will disappear again. ;) :shock:

Regards,
Mike.

Fungi with hard black cracked charcoal appearance with a brownish band around it found on a eucalyptus tree which is in poor condition with lots of decay. Hopefully the pictures will work this time !

I've merged your second reply, above, (posted as a separate topic), to avoid multiple threads on the same subject).

Mike.

I'm surprised that no one has yet responded to this.

I don't really "do brackets", but I'll throw a suggestion in.
Probably wrong, but I'd be thinking along the lines of something like old looking Ganoderma australe.

Regards,
Mike.

Hello,

I think this is Phellinus igniarius or a similar species - the host Eucalyptus in unusual and it might be interesting for the polypore freaks to have a look (by microscope) what it rally is.

best regards,
Andreas
