Recognized by sight: They look like typical white oysters from Ohio. I’m still a little shaky on Oyster mushroom ID’s, but I suspect these mushrooms are the same that I posted here.

If you read more carefully, you’ll understand what I said: I couldn’t imagine you cutting down a tree for the mushrooms – that’s the reason why I suspected a log with a cultivated species. Who’s shooting?

I agree not pleurotus ostreatus

Your comments are out of line. I thought this was a educational site to help people ID mushrooms and learn.For your information this was found on a peice of fire wood and i would not cut down a tree to get a picture. Befor you take shots at someone KNOW YOU FAXS. I will find a more freindly site.

I agree with Debbie

You don’t cut down a tree to get a nice photo at home of an oyster, do you?
What comes to my mind, is an inoculated log with some cultivated strain of oysters – could be just about anything, then… The one who did it, should know.

I dunno…that’s awful white for ostreatus…
