there is a bandwagon…and i failed to hop on it.

we can call every other observation w/o a collection and proof “Polyporales” but, apparently not this one…

because, Noah says so!!

you cant even see the pore surface…

yet, “i’d call it that” is reasonable…

I mainly wanted to make sure that Ischnoderma was no longer attached to an observation from santa cruz, where there are no records of that genus.

If people want to keep arguing whether these turkey tail are turkey tails, I will not mourn the loss of one data point.

The zonate cap, bluish inner band, growth in overlapping clusters and the near-total lack of species that could be confused for it (in Santa Cruz county) make it pretty clearly Trametes versicolor.

or at least what is being called T. versicolor it a lot thicker-fleshed then the eastern one; especially when young like these
