Brief Description: See More | Edit

Trametes versicolor (L.) Lloyd (1920)

Commonly known as the Turkey Tail. This shelf-fungus has small, thin, and leathery overlapping stalkless caps with multicolored concentric zones that alternate between smooth and hairy. It has a white pore surface. The tough basidiocarps will persist overwinter and can be found year-round on dead hardwood logs and stumps.

Also known as Polyporus versicolor and Coriolus versicolor

Trametes versicolor (L.: Fries) Pilát
Atl. Champ. Eur. 3:261. 1936.

Common Name: turkey tails

Synonym: Coriolus versicolor , Polyporus versicolor

  • Sporocarp

    Fruiting body up to 10 cm broad, bracket to shelf-like or fan-shaped, attached along one side or just near the middle of one side, the upper surface tomentose, with multicolored zones. Flesh thin, usually less than 2 mm thick, white, tough, and fibrous. The underside a white to pale yellow layer of very small tubes, vertically oriented with 3-5 pores per mm, the tube mouths more or less round.

  • Spores

    Spores 4-6 x 1.5-2.5 µm, slightly curved-cylindrical (like a cooked hotdog), smooth, hyaline, white to pale yellow in deposit.

  • Habitat

    Typically in rows or overlapping shelves on stumps and logs of hardwoods, from fall to spring.

  • Edibility

    Too tough to try.

  • Comments

    Though fruiting during the fall and winter months, shelves of the colorful turkey tail can be found almost any month of the year. Trametes versicolor is sometimes confused with unrelated leathery shelf fungi. Species of Stereum have orange-brown zoned caps but can be distinguished by their smooth hymenial surface. Lenzites , Daedalea , Daedaleopsis , and Gloeophyllum all have a multicolored, zonate upper surfaces, but their hymeniums are variously composed of irregular, mazelike, or elongated gill-like pores.
