    These were seen on Mayne Island. Are these greenish fungi Trametes versicolor, Stereum hirsutum or something else entirely?

    Hi David - the whitish margin, if it is part of the undersurface, as well as the thickness of the fruiting bodies, would help to eliminate Stereum from the possibilities.
    Looks like it is on a hardwood, possible maple?
    The most likely ID is Trametes, but without the underside and needing a closer look, cannot make a positive ID.

    There were so many varieties of fungi that I saw on this trip, I honestly do not remember what the substrate was.
    Thank you for the clear analysis.
