Turkey tail fungus / Many zomed polpore (Trametes versicolor)
Description:

Small brown/white whorls of fungus on a log, up to 5cms across, many smaller. Not quite the usual growth form, but it's said to vary a lot and I can't find another likely candidate. These are quite newly emerged I think.

Identifications

Caution: Do NOT use iSpot to identify fungi to eat!

Some fungi are very poisonous so a mistaken ID could have serious consequences.
