• Mushroom ID?


    Hello! I wanted to see if there is perhaps anyone with a knowledge of mycology and could assist me in identifying whether the attached picture is an oyster mushroom. It was found in a shelf formation attached to the side of a tree stump. Thank you so much for your help!

    Thanks for sending a picture of the mushroom in question. Mushroom ID is difficult, and the picture is small that I can’t see a lot of details. But here is a link to members of the Ohio Mushroom Society that may be helpful. These folks have more expertise and could probably ID your mushroom. Local author of Mushrooms of the Northeast Field Guide Walt Sturgeon has been helpful with IDs. Also, the field guide is excellent! -Naturalist Linda Gilbert
