Bracket and Crust Fungi Gallery

Bracket and crust fungi are as varied in size, colour and texture as cap-and-stem mushrooms, but their habitat range is much more restricted: they grow on living or dead trees. (Some pored fungi can grow either as brackets or with central stems, and they are included here.) Also included are a few gilled members of the family Polyporaceae.



Ganodermataceae and Fistulinaceae

Hymenochaetaceae and Bondarzewiaceae

Meripilaceae and Meruliaceae

Steriaceae, Phanerochaetaceae, Schizoporaceae and Peniophoraceae

Peniophora incarnata, Rosy Crust fungus

For more information about the various families of bracket fungi and a deeper insight into the ecology and structure of the species featured in our Bracket Fungi Gallery pages, please see Pat O'Reilly's latest book Fascinated by Fungi, author-signed copies of which are available online here...
