Mushroom Identification

Do you know what mushroom this is? It was found where I live on the Eastern seaboard of the US in central VA, in the sunny area of the grassy lawn after a lot of rain.

I’m not an expert but it looks similar to this one I photographed in the U.K. which is called polyporus squamosus

Suzanne, I believe that is called Turkey Tail. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Trametes_versicolor

I don't think this is a turkey tail, those tend to be a lot more defined, quite literally like the turkey tail :)
Gill came up with a good name "Amazing Fungi" why not give that a shot? You can always put the other names in the keywords section...

Andrey, I am almost certain that is Turkey Tail. If you look it up, there are several varieties, some are darker and more defined and then there are lighter varieties like hers. If you click on the link I provided and scroll down you will see one of the lighter varieties that looks like hers.

To further prove that this is indeed Turkey Tail, I took a screen shot of her photo and put it into my iNaturalist app on my phone and it identified it as Turkey Tail.

Judy, Phones are amazing these days! I agree, probably depending on the soil and climate conditions it can look different. Looks more like Turkey Tail. Thank you everyone!
