When: 2011-09-08

Collection location: Southern St. Louis Co, Minnesota, USA [Click for map]

Who: Gene Kremer (GeneMN)

Specimen available

Notes:
Multiple overlapping growing at base of maple tree 15 cm wide x 7 cm high and deep, distinct smell similar to oyster; individual caps 2-6 cm wide & deep, dry, smooth, tan oac766 darker at edges, soft and pliable; gills decurrent, sinuate, forking tan oac766,; stipe 3-4 cm x .5-.8 cm lateral tan oac758, fleshy, groove and irregular shaped (by crowding); spores on caps is white; microscopic work not done yet.

I would guess some kind of Pleurotus by the smell and form, but I’m not finding one that fits. From pictures online, best fit is Hohenbuelia sp.
