Bracket Fungi -one

? Trametes versicolor

Description:

Series of bracket fungi with velvety brown bases and brown upper surfaces fanning out to white margins. The concentric panels of brown colour faded towards the margins. There also appeared to be some radiating folds on these brackets. Thickness of plate was about 10mm. The under surface was a little moist with flattened tubular pores.

Habitat:

growing on a small piece of wood - ? species of wood, probably some sort of Prunus.

Notes:

Have spent sometime on getting an ID but thanks to martinl, I do believe that these fungi might be Trametes sp, with the variations from a previous spotting http://www.projectnoah.org/spottings/114... being reflective of changes in weather and rainfall.

No species ID suggestions

You're probably right Martin. Thank you. especially the next spotting-it looks like budding turkeytails. i will post them as such and see if anyone has further comments.

These are some nice photos. My guess is that both are the rainbow fungus that you spotted earlier. It is east to imagine that they grow very differently according to temperature, nutrition and humidity conditions.
