Most of your polyporaceae groups of fungi, have some sort of medicinal properties to them, Most contain special polysaccharides that have neoplasia,viral,Bacterial fighting capabilities.As far As Trametes goes along with T. versicolor there is the T. gibbosa from Asia. It is currently being tested as a possible treatment in HIV-1(Mlinaric et al,.2005) Also in the USA T.hirsuta have shown to have similar proprites to T. Gibbosa and T versicolor, And species Trichaptum abietinus which is very closely related to Trametes has strong medicinal properties.

Which Trametes species are medicinal?

Just versicolor or are there others, I only pick versicolor for tea, but it would be great to find out there more.
