[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I had captured this Fungi in our yard where it grows every year on rotten woods. It was semi dark place and light condition wasn't very good. I have no idea of its ID. Although, Laszlo once helped me to know its Family.

This is Lentinus genus mushroom.

Thanks Laszlo for this Fungi's family ID.

Hello Srikumar
Outstanding close up of this large mushroom. The sharp detail shows off the intricate patten on the top of the mushroom. Nicely composed. Well done!

Hi Sri,
Beautiful shot, and although Tricholomataceae family can't be excluded, your specimen rather seems a species from Lentinus genus, Polyporaceae family. However, the photo's fantastic, congratulations!
Best wishes, László
