Observation 26653: Pleurotus ostreatus (Jacq.) P. Kumm.

Found growing on a very decomposing Hardwood stump. Smell light anis like mild taste. Spore print a pale violet lilac. Very differnt from others i have found in the early fall which are mush more whiter and smaller. This is more like what I use to find in California growing on Mature Alders in canyons.
