Caption: Mushroom underside. Coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of the underside of a chicken of the woods mushroom, also called a sulphur polypore mushroom. This mushroom is the fruiting body of the Laetiporus sulphureus fungus. It is a polypore mushroom that distributes its reproductive spores through the many pores seen here. The pores are up to 3 millimetres long. This polypore mushroom is parasitic on trees, forming large fan-shaped brackets, mostly on oak but also on yew, cherry, willow and sweet chestnut trees. The young, fresh brackets are edible. Magnification unknown.
