I was out hunting morels and ran across this mushroom that I believe to be Pleurotus citrinopileatus. I was under the impression that this was cultivated only. Unless someone planted spore plugs in the woods this is a wild golden oyster. Walt Sturgeon from the Ohio Mushroom Society seems to agree. Can anyone verify?
