I see why we have to stick with Pleurotus sp.. I didn’t notice any fine lines on the cap, and though these are relatively small and lacked any shade of browning, these could easily be newly emerging ostreatus at the base of this living hardwood. Mark

My experience has one that I find on aspen smells of anise.

Thanks Walt.

Walt,
Is there any reason why we wouldn’t specify this as P. pulmonarius. Thanks, Mark
