Observation 63869: Trametes versicolor (L.) Lloyd

When: 2011-02-25

Collection location: King Co., Washington, USA [Click for map]

47.5495075563° -122.2534132004°

Who: P. Hill (phill)

No specimen available

Rather a greenish specimen and not with the usual whitish closer to the edge, but think it is a Trametes versicolor (Turkey Tail).


Tim is keeping me honest and making me show the pores. I had to bring a bit of it to better light to get good detail, but this shows that there definitely are pores confirming the Trametes versicolor.
This shows it growing on the fallen madrone wood and shows the small pores.

To see them on Madrone, I don’t much of anything growing on these (at least compared to other hardwoods and conifers in the area).

Likley T. versicolor…..

But photos of the underside would be needed to be certain. Trametes will have small pores, while Stereum will not have any pores at all.
