I’d Like That to Be True

It would make ID a lot easier. Most of my information is from observing specimens with Dr. Jean Lodge, which were keyed using microscopic characteristics. Check out this link:


It’s the first thing that comes up when you google Pleurotus djamor. Under the paragraph macromorphology it explains the wide range of color variations which have tempted mycologists in splitting the species in the past, but phylogenetic information suggests they are all djamor. It even describes several color morphs, three of which are white.

Pleurotus djamor gets its name from its pink color, the mushroomin your picture is pleurotus pulminarious. If you have a Description of Pleurotus djamor having the colors in your pictures, please post it. I have only seen them described as being pink.
