Laetiporus is a genus of edible mushrooms found throughout much of the world. Some species, especially Laetiporus sulphureus, are commonly known as sulphur shelf, chicken of the woods, the chicken mushroom, or the chicken fungus because many think they taste like chicken.
Blue Leratiomyces were first discovered in New Caledonia and then on Lord Howe Island. But this is the first recorded appearance on mainland Australia (and they are Steve's favourite fungi). Image by Steve Axford.
