I found these on a stump in the woodpile at our new home. It may be an oak tree, but since it’s an old stump it’s difficult for me to tell. (The pine needles on the mushrooms are from the trees growing next to the stump.) I spent a lot of time sending photos to others of the attached mushrooms for help identifying. Everyone agreed they appeared to be turkey tail, so I felt confident harvesting. Once I began flipping them over I noticed that many of the mushrooms have orange specks in the pores of the undersides. Is this common on turkey tails or does this mean they are another type of mushroom? There were multiple clusters on the same stump and while I assumed they were all turkey tail I now wonder if some were a similar but different variety.
I just moved from CA to LA. I had an infetid and have been hunting turkeytails to help me get rid of it. I don't know if these are turkey tail mushrooms... They were in the right environment, on the right wood. Definitely a polypore so probably harmless reguardless... anyone? Any insight?
