May already! Seems like just a few months ago the Trametes versicolor were just little babies. Like the baby bear cubs we came across today. Mom and two little ones the size of jack russels – so sweet. They were lollygagging around and Mom was watching over them. We waited until they passed along and continued our on our way.

These Trametes versicolor (Coriolus versicolor, kawaritake, turkey tail) were found in upper Mount Elphinstone, Sunshine Coast, BC, Canada.





About the Trametes versicolor Mushroom

Trametes versicolor – synonym Coriolus versicolor and Polyporus 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.
