Why Rigidoporus?

Just wondering how you came to that conclusion. They sure look like Turkey Tail to me…

…in better lighting conditions.

They are pliable/rubbery.

No obvious bruising apart from a very slight creamy discolouration.

Maybe it is just an extreme closeup but those things look thick.

But they do look like Trametes versicolor.

It’s close to home so I’ll revisit the site and let you know the details shortly.

does the pore surface bruise any color when handled or scratched? Is this fungi hard or soft? If the flesh was soft and it bruises brown it could be Ganoderma applanatum…
