"Trametes versicolor" is a common polypore mushroom found throughout the world. Meaning 'of several colours', "versicolor" reliably describes this mushroom found in different colors. By example, due to its resembling multiple colors in the tail of wild turkey, "T. versicolor" is commonly called turkey tail.
