In China, Trametes is the first mushroom sold-out at local food fairs. Even before more edible fungi are sold-out. Why? In China, Trametes versicolor is chewed like gum for medicinal properties. The Chinese use it as a potent anti-carcinogenic, and consider it more effective as a preventative rather than as a cure.

thanks for bearing with me

i do appreciate the help, but the complaints/requests on photos i took months ago are getting somewhat bothersome (b/c i took the photo months ago). if i had more photos, they would be here.. if it’s insufficient for an i.d., i’ll live another day, but i’m not exactly an expert, i work a fast-pace 9-5 job during the week, and i only started putting any effort into i.d.s very recently. most of these photos were taken well before any of this would have crossed my mind. you’ll notice that i’m making more of an effort with more recent photos.

Really need more photos, Cory.

Especially of the pores. A closer photo of the cap could help, but these look rather old. The greenish tint suggests they may have algae growing on them, which doesn’t happen for at least a year.
