loves oyster mushrooms. I have even seen it on oysters in the super market.
There is possibly one starting on the stem of the uppermost fruiting.

Slime mold?

I’m wondering why the Physarum polycephalum name was thrown out there?

The 2 on the right look quite like oysters. But the others, flipped over, don’t have gills quite as decurrent as I normally find.
