Help IDing polypore

I've tenatively ID'd it as Trametes versicolor - Bacusyardus. The fruit in the pic is from last year. The new growth that I cloned from had more of a greenish tint to it. Sorry, no pic of the cloned fruit.

I've ruled out Auricularia mesenterica (Bracket Jelly). The underside of these specimens are covered w/ pores.

Can anyone advise? Is this some deadly poser?

No prob, if your clones are actually tender enough to suggest edibility. No polypores are known to be toxic; a few (Ganoderma spp.) are highly regarded in Chinese medicine, and a couple (Griffola frondosa and Laetiporus sulphureus) are good eating when young & tender. But not Turkey Tails.

There are a number of humorous "recipes" around for prepping the woody polypores. One suggests marinating in brine for six months, tenderizing with a sledgehammer, boiling in beef broth for six days, then give it to your dog for a chew-toy.

Cool, thx Woodsman.. So far, the mycelia fits the characteristics of Turkey Tail as described in GGMM. Hopefully I've ID'd it correctly.

My ID guide shows most polypores as inedible, probably due to the texture or taste. My interest is in making medicinal mushroom caplets.

So far I've got cultures for 3 of the 'Stamets 7' fungi. I haven't figured out what to do about Cordiceps sinesus yet..

Yeah, no kidding. Cordyceps is my white whale of cultivation. No one seems to have it.

Someone told me turkey tail can be a survival food; sort of suck and chew on it like jerky.

Egg, let me know if you track down a Cordyceps culture; I asked Stamets about the fruiting of this thing, he said he only extracts from the mycelium. Man, I want to inoculate mealworms!!

The above information is complete fiction.

Oh, I was also going to ask; How thick are those fruits in the pic? The versicolor I've found over here was very thin, maybe a couple mm thick. You could tear it pretty easily. It was the same color as your pic, though.

The above information is complete fiction.

Don't worry Suntzu.. If I get a Codyceps culture I'll spread it far & wide so there are plenty of backups around. ;)

The fruits shown in the pic are thin and easily tear. The userside is covered w/ pores. I guess I just may have ID'd it correctly. The cloned cultures are doing well.

According to GGMM, they're very easy to grow.
