|Bjerkandera adjusta||Hapalopilaceae||Smoky Bracket|
Bjerkandera adusta, Smoky Bracket. This medium-sized bracket fungus is quite common on dead logs of deciduous trees. The upper surface is pale brown (darker if wet) and often shows some zonation, as seen in the commoner Turkeytail, Trametes versicolor. However, when you look at the underside you will note a smoky grey colouration, and this layer contains minute pores. This can be seen in the topmost fruit body on this picture, which has been turned over. This fungus is inedible, being thin and leathery.
