Please try to include photos to show all parts of the fungus, eg top, stem, and gills.
Note any smells, and associated trees or plants (eg oak, birch). A spore print can be very useful.

Note the fruits are dried out, so may have been white underneath. I've harvested them. I am soaking the log to try to fruit again, if it is Turkey Tail.
