Observation 19966: Polyporaceae Fr. ex Corda
When: 2009-03-23
No herbarium specimen

Notes: This fungi attracted my attention because of all the variable colours. I think these are also called Rainbow fungi, but this particular specimen was really beautiful. If you look at the base of the stem there is colour that I have not seen or probably not noticed before. This area again was extremely wet, and the canopy had been broken by falling trees due to the excessive high rainfall and softened soil.

Trametes versicolor (L.) Lloyd (19966) Yellow

Debbie, You could be right. I have never seen this on these fungi before.

I wonder if, in light of the excessive rainfall, that yellow color isn’t something growing…

with calling the Australian zonate trametes that I saw versicolor The pores are much larger and overall it is a much stockier mushroom then the ones in NA. Has anybody done work on the worldwide distribution of T. versicolor?

It was common in FNQ and occasional in southeast QLD through central NSW, and in the southwest
