I hadn’t realized that Stereum spp were resupinate when young so thought these were 2 different spp. In the resupinate stage this obs resembles one of mine 159024 which I’m trying to ID as it is the key to IDing the Tremella sp I think on obs 159008.

These images were taken in a somewhat hasty situation.

I believe that all images are the same species. I cannot add any additional comments.

Collected at Gog le hi te wetlands.

suggest Trametes or Stereum. Hard to tell what the fertile surface looks like from the photos. Are there pores? See Kuo, M. (2005, March). Trametes versicolor: The turkey tail. Retrieved from the MushroomExpert.Com Web site: http://www.mushroomexpert.com/trametes_versicolor.html

last 2 photos are of the same fungus. Other fungus are parchment or resupinate. The last 2 photos are shelf-like.
