Also known as the Honey Mushroom.
It is often a creamy-yellow colour, but the colour can vary from whitish to yellow, to an orange-brown. It is easily recognisable with the little dark granules on the surface of the caps. It is often found on fallen logs and old stumps during autumn and early winter, on both native and introduced trees.
This can often be found in large masses on dead wood, not only of native trees but also pines planted where natives had once been. It also infects kiwifruit vines and fruit trees.
