Observation 55221: Hohenbuehelia Schulzer

I have displayed both sides of this specimen in an effort to have it correctly named. The naming I have used is from the Fungimap reference, but, the specimen I have shown is only about 1/10th the size of the data supplied by the Fungimap reference.(diam to 200mm)
The caps in this specimen are only about 20-25mm across. The tops of the caps were vicous. The stems were short. The gill habit was identical to the “pleurotus” common name (Brown oyster). This is most probly of the Pleurotaceae family but needs identification.

  • I also have another naming that most likely fits this specimen , (especially the gill formation). This suggested naming is ……“Hohenbuehelia atrocaerulea.” The upper surface description fits from the reference, but there is no mention of viscosity . *******
