Collection location: Ottawa, Ontario, Canada [Click for map]

Who: Rick (ShroomLover)

No specimen available

I actually picked these mushrooms on April 30th,2010 in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada.
I found them growing on a dead log which looked like a Popular or Aspen tree.
The surface is white and smooth like suede. The gills are white,closely spaced and decurrent. The spore print is also white. The stem is more of a foot only. It smells like fresh bread. It certainly looks like an Oyster mushroom but I’d like more opinions. Are there other tests I can perform ?
