Sorry, I thought I had added

Sorry, I thought I had added the second photo but had missed it off. It shows a couple of bits broken off and one of them a bit chewed but no colour change.

One characteristic -

of T.versicolor is said to be that the edges are always white, whatever the other variations. On that basis, it looks right, but I'm not sure how reliable the feature is.
