Observation 204055: Pleurotus ostreatus group
When: 2015-05-08
Collection location: Washington, USA [Click for map]
No herbarium specimen

Notes: These are home cultivated on TP in a terrarium outdoors – vented for air exchange and watered frequently. Out of several collections, only this individual mushroom possessed the pileus margin projections that occurred very, very late in development. This could be either a second species that is symbiotically living on/with the Pluerotus mushroom, or it could be differentiated cells producing this formation. Maybe it’s something else, too.

What does this community think it is?
