but the only yellow Pleurotus sp. I know of is P. citrinopileatus, which is, I think, described from the Neotropics. It also grows in large, caespitose clusters on wood (though maybe not exclusively). The lack of caespitose habit, the larger stature, and the darker disc make me think this is not that sp. Micro may be required.

It smelled like an oyster, felt like an oyster, broke like an oyster. Is there any oyster similar to this?

Are both damaged and serrate. The stipe texture doesn’t look correct for Russulaceae.

look more damaged than serrate, in a sphaerocysty, Russulaceae kind of way.

doesn’t necessarily rule out Armillaria
