I’d suppose these are cultivated. Interestingly, Wikipedia claims that P. nameko is the Russian “opyata” mushroom. But my understanding is that opyata refers to Armillaria. Difficult to believe that the Russians would apply the same name to both brown spored and white spored mushrooms. So I think the Wikipedia information is incorrect.
