Comparative thicknesses

Both fungi (Trametes and Meripilus) were growing around the base of the same beech? tree. Without precise measures, the size of the sandstone block, which could easily seat an adult, is an indicator. I shall take my measures with me next time.

Trametes (versicolor) tends

Trametes (versicolor) tends to have at least some individual fruit-bodies rather than just a clump like this.
