Turkey Tail

Trametes versicolor

"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.
Turkey Tail - Trametes versicolor Turkey Tail gets its name from the fact that it sort of resembles a turkey's tail. The caps were bracket-shaped, thin, velvety, and had concentric zones of blue, brown, white, and red. The pores were white.

Appearance

The top surface of the cap shows typical concentric zones of different colours. The flesh is 1–3 mm thick and has leathery texture. Older specimens, such as the one pictured, can have zones with green algae growing on them, thus appearing green. It commonly grows in tiled layers. The cap is rust-brown or darker brown, sometimes with blackish zones. The cap is flat, up to 8 x 5 x 0.5-1 cm in area. It is often triangular or round, with zones of fine hairs. The pore surface is whitish to light brown, pores round and with age twisted and labyrinthine. 2-5 pores per millimeter.

It may be eaten by caterpillars of the fungus moth "Nemaxera betulinella" and by maggots of the Platypezid fly "Polyporivora picta".
