Fresh and wet these Stereum ostrea mushrooms can be vibrant orange in color. When faded they are sometimes confused with other similar zoned bracket mushrooms, leading to the common name "false turkey tail." The underside of this fruiting body shows that it is not closely related to its lookalikes. Other brackets are polypores, releasing spores from tubes under the mushroom, while Stereum simply has spore-releasing cells on the smooth surface below the colorful top.
