This is growing out of the ground in a yard in Decatur Ga. It sprang up in a matter of days and there are smaller, black versions, nearby. There is no unpleasant smell, measures well over a foot in diameter, and is off white with black edges. I don’t believe that this is a Turkey Tail. The owner of the yard is concerned and wants to kill it to prevent it from spreading. If she can’t kill it she wants to know if it should be preserved and if so, how.

    It’s a very interesting color. We’ve been getting a lot of very interesting mushroom pictures this summer! I’d say some variety of false turkey tail, but they don’t usually aggregate in that fashion.

    Actually it has been refuted by an ecologist that it is not a Turkey Tail. And it also is not growing on wood chips. Grew out of plain ol’ GA clay. But thanks for the responses.
