Old fruiting bodies, approximately 3-4 cm across; fan-shaped, semicircular, or irregularly kidney-shaped; tough, smooth surface; now white with some thin concentric zones of brown; attached directly to the log without a stem. Undersurface, smooth; whitish to buff brown.
Growing in lateral cluster on log on ridge on service path between Green/White Trails.
Young brackets are a rich brown; undersides are a deeper brown. The smooth undersides are a cardinal characteristic for differentiating between Turkey Tails (Trametes versicolor) and False Turkey Tail (Stereum ostrea). Additional photos/discussion: http://www.messiah.edu/Oakes/fungi_on_wo...
