Rainbow bracket fungus

Rainbow bracket fungus

The rainbow bracket fungus (Trametes versicolor) is common on dead wood in forests and urban gardens. It grows to about 5–10 centimetres in diameter and has a velvety appearance, with distinct brown and white zones on its upper surface. Its lower surface contains thousands of pores, the ends of tubes in which spores are produced and released into the air.
