It may not be edible, but drinkable in tea maybe....

Possibly Tramates versicolor, but I actually think it is something different but similar.

Wait for a TI thats good with polypores.

You should read this:

and provide more information first.

Yes, that string of words I arranged together does make sense!

I would call that Trametes versicolor, aka "Turkey Tail", as Twiz suggested.

The tree species and pics are usually enough for polypores, but it is true that you should fill out a proper ID request.

Thanks for the rules though Mr. 9 posts....:wink:

They are pretty consistently thin throughout the fruiting body, right?  Like only a few mm thick?  And they are very tough, either leathery or hard like bark (that is if they are dried out)?

It's a Trametes; versicolor... probably not. AU has a couple of similar looking Trametes but they have thicker flesh and larger pores then our T. versicolor. It's still being called versicolor there but that will probably change with time. But then again it is growing on a introduced tree... Just call it Turkey-tail. Have turkeys been introduced to Tassie? I know that they are on King and Flinders Island...

I agree, the photos do make it look like this mushroom is thicker than your typical T. versicolor...

The colours are right for the species, but the pores seem a tad larger and look sort of spongy.
