Rainbow Bracket (aka Turkey Tail)

Trametes versicolor


Trametes versicolor is a common polypore mushroom found throughout the world. Meaning 'of several colours', versicolor reliably describes this mushroom found in different colors. By example, due to its resembling multiple colors in the tail of wild turkey, T. versicolor is commonly called turkey tail.


Found in a local park amongst bushland in leafy suburban Sydney. These specimens were found on tree logs.


My first encounter with this species. I'll keep an eye on them to see how they change over time.
