Added photo of decurrent gills and pinkish spore print – more white than pink

Are the gills decurrent enough for P. ostreatus? Other observations with stems seem to have more decurrent gills.

And Pluteus would have free gills and a pinker spore color.

Wow! Thanks guys!

The shot of the underside really does look like an oyster mushroom, and the top is not as dark as most photos of the deer mushroom. The spore print had a pink cast to it. It was the central stem that fooled me.

Cool Variation

What a neat specimen with the stem so centered and straight.
