Fascinating and positively wonderfully captured. Congrats May!!
“MIGHT BE” EDIBLE BRACKET (lenzites elegans (=L. palisoti) Up to 350mm wide and 15mm thick. Single or in groups. Cap leathery to woody; white to cream, smooth, summer-autumn. Fragrant spicy smell. On dead hardwood trees. APART FROM ALL THIS (IF IT IS OF ANY HELP) IT REALLY IS A GREAT CAPTURE!
i’m going with Turkey Tail…Stereum ostrea…the colors fit it more? I don’t think we have Lenzites elegans here in the states? or maybe under another name….
I don’t think so, Carla. These are very thin and grow singly. Turkey Tails are thicker, clustered. I have images of them here.
Oh heck…I wonder how long ago I left that comment? Lol…From experience I NOW know these are actually FALSE Turkey Tail…Stereum ostrea. The almost metalic golds and bronzes truly gives this species away I think. :o)
