Ochre Bracket

Trametes ochracea


These are semi-circular or shell-shaped brackets broadly attached to the naked wood of a log. Individual caps are leathery on touch, and 2-6cm across. They overlap in layers, forming larger fruiting masses. The upper surface sports concentric zones of various shades of brown and ochre. The underside is covered in irregularly shaped pores (pic N° 4) - pores are deeper, 2-4mm, than those in it's cousin Turkey tail (T. versicolor).


Found growing on barkless wood, or protruding from the space between the bark and wood (pic N°5). Seen old logs discarded and lying around on forest floor (pic N° 6) of a lowland broadleaved forest (oak and beech), in Geneva lake valley.
