Caption: Photograph of a bracket fungus, probably Trametes versicolor, growing on the trunk of a dead Immortelle tree, Trinidad. Bracket fungi or polypores, along with mushrooms, toadstools and puffballs, belong to the best-known class of fungi, the basidiomycetes. The shelf-like structure seen here is the basidiocarp, the spore- bearing "fruit" of the fungus. The basidiocarps of bracket fungi can live for many years and often show distinct growth layers.
