*** Warning ***

I wrestled with the option of whether or not to try to identify and place names to my fungus images.  The study of fungi is done by specialists known as a "mycologists" who have many years of education and specialize in identification.  There are many techniques used to identify a mushroom and it simply cannot be done by visual inspection alone.  Incorrectly identifying a mushroom can have deadly consequences if eaten.

While I have tried to link images with fungus names, I am but a lay person and have used books and images to try to look up, categorize and name the species.  My identification should in no way be relied upon and may be completely inaccurate!

There are many toxic mushroom "look-alikes"  that resemble edible ones.  You should UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES  rely up on any of these images to identify edible, toxic or medicinal organisms/plants.  Some mushrooms and fungi are DEADLY  poisonous and their effects do not show up until it is too late to save yourself.  YOU alone are responsible for properly identifying any mushrooms that you may be interested in.  I have attached names to images which I merely THINK resemble the species.

I am grateful for corrections to taxonomic determinations, please contact me at FreeTiiuPix 

 

Trametes & Others 
[Turkey Tail]

There are various Trametes species that are quite similar and require close inspection in order to accurately identify the species you have at hand.  For example, the most common, Trametes versicolor, also known as the "Coriolus versicolor" and "Polyporus versicolor", is a colourful bracket fungi commonly known as "Turkey Tail" or "Unji Mushroom".  "Versicolor" means "several colours" and one can easily see the resemblance to that of the tail of a wild turkey.  While the colours are variable, one can usually see specimens that are buff, brown, cinnamon and reddish brown but may also include blues, greens and oranges.

The top surface of the fungus cap shows rings of different colours with the flesh being 1-3 mm thick and slightly fuzzy or velvety.  Older fruiting bodies will have green areas of algae growth.  This species grows in a shelving fashion, and is  3 - 8 cm long and up to 5 cm wide.  It is a very common fungus.

While T. versicolor usually fruits on hardwood logs and stumps, it does occasionally fruit on conifers, as in the images below.

Similar to T. versicolor, is Trametes villosa, having shades of gray and buff and large pores.  Another Turkey Tail look alike is Trametes hirsuta, also having a grayish cap with a brown margin.

Unlike the T. versicolor which is a polypore, a similar species is the "crust" fungi Stereum ostrea, or the "False Turkey Tail".  While the S. ostrea has a smooth  underside, T. versicolor has a pore surface.

Fabulous Fungi

 

 

"The world depends 
on fungi, 
because they are 
major players in the
cycling of materials 
and energy 
around the world."

~ E.O. Wilson ~

 

 

 

"I thought a forest 
was made up 
entirely of trees, 
but now I know 
that the foundation 
lies below ground,
in the fungi."

~ Derrick Jensen ~

 

 

 

 

"Falling in love 
is like 
eating mushrooms, 
you never know 
if it's the real thing 
until it's too late."
