A beautiful fresh fruiting of turkey tails on Red alder logs(off of evergreen parkway/17th).
We harvested and dehydrated these(as we do every year at this time) for making medicinal turkey tail tea with ginger/lemon. PSK-also known as Krestin is the main isolated medicinal compound from turkey tail mycelium. Also, many other triterpenoids, ergosterols and anti bacterial properties are present in Trametes versicolor.
Note the pore structure on image #2.
Temp: Low 30’s, overcast.
