This was displayed at the 2006 Oregon Mycological Society Fall Mushroom Show, World Forestry Center, Portland, OR. The display tag has the OMS Herbarium number. This specimen was cultivated by the OMS cultivation group. Pretty nice mushrooms! It is interesting to note that some toxic waste degradation is also accomplished by Pleurotus ostreatus. The term is bioremediation.
