Violet-toothed Polypores (NOT to be confused with Turkeytail fungus) are quite common here in southern New Brunswick. Nevertheless, it is really fun to photograph! Midland, New Brunswick, Canada. Captured on a CASIO EX-H20G

I never leave the front door without my camera. I can’t seem to put it down for long. Perhaps that makes me an addict rather than an enthusiast ~ sometimes it is hard to tell the difference. But, in any case, thank you very much for taking the time to browse through my collection. I hope you enjoy what you see! ~ Sincerely, Katie

    Heya Kathleen…don’t hate me? These are actually Violet-toothed Polypores. Turkeytail has a white pourous undersides….these are a beautiful purple/violet. On the top-side you’ll see just the palest purple edge. ALSO used as a medicinal…but not for cancer like TT is now. I love finding these as I can often find Psuedo Scorpians under them!

  • haha, not to worry carla! i’m very grateful for your expertise and appreciate that you take the time to set me straight!! .. =D .. i wasn’t aware of the violet-toothed polypores! and that’s what these are for sure! i’ll make the correction and then keep my eyes out now for the differences between the two! i’ve never heard of psuedo scorpions! .. =0

    phew! I’m awful, I know, about ID’s for stuff….
    Pseudo Scorpians are AWESOME! They LOOK like them but don’t have the tails…are TINY…and have these awesome little hooked claws that they use to latch onto host insects to move from location to location.

  • i like to be accurate so no worries on that account! .. =D .. i wonder if those little creatures live here. i’ll have to keep my eyes out for them in the future! .. =D
