Turkey Tail Bracket Fungus - Basidiomycota by 


These fungi are generally tough and colored in layers that make them resemble the pattern of a turkey tail – loosely. The colors are remarkably variable. In this image you can’t see much of the the underside which has no gills. They have holes instead and are called Polypores.

This may be Gloeophyllum sepiarium – not a positive ID, however.

This picture was taken September 14, 2012, in Green Lane, Pennsylvania, USA.

Turkey Tail Bracket Fungus – Basidiomycota
by MotherNature2

I love nature, science, poetry, prose, art, music – you name it! Now that I’m retired, time is mine to spend as I wish (pretty much), and I wish to take pictures of our natural world.

Bringing the outdoors in for others to see, especially those who may not get the opportunity to wander next to a pond, fish at the beach, or tramp in the woods, is a pleasure. I hope to build a window to the wonders of nature that fill our everyday lives.

    Nice, are these edible? Some of them are sought after but I forget now which ones.

  • I don’t believe they are recommended for eating. I am so chicken I won’t eat any wild fungus. They are pretty, though:>)
