Observation 114410: Pleurotus (Fr.) P. Kumm.

When: 2012-10-24

Collection location: Chicago, Illinois, USA [Click for map]

Who: T. Nelson

No specimen available

I had an Oyster of a day today. This is one of them. I am curious as to whether anyone can identify this as either P. populinus or P. pulmonharius from my pictues. Cottonwoods and Quaking Aspen trees have both been present in the forest preserve area where these pictures were taken. Both trees have also on occasion been cut down for various reasons. I was not able to determine from the leaf litter which is mostly oak or from the dead trunk the species of tree.
