These coriolus (Trametes versicolor, Coriolus versicolor, kawaritake, turkey tail) were found in upper Mount Elphinstone, Sunshine Coast, BC, Canada. Note that although Coriolus versicolor is a synonym to the correct binomial nomenclature Trametes versicolor, many still refer to this mushroom as simply coriolus – a blast from the past.

About the Coriolus Mushroom (Trametes versicolor)
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. More information: Trametes versicolor: Wikipedia
