more oyesters (pics)
    #2160556 - 12/05/03 06:03 AM (13 years, 5 days ago)

i found these in the same spot as i found the oyesters in my previous post however the caps on these are not brown like the ones i found growing directly from a tree stump the ones in the picture above were found a bout three feet from the brown capped ones why are the caps such a different color is it due to the differences in substrate (brown ones on the stump, lighter colored ones on the ground)?
or could it be due to the maturity of the mushroom?

thanks evreyone at the shroomery!

nice, very nice :smile:

the colors in most oyster mushrooms are a bit variable.


Attn PWN hunters: If you should come across a bluing Psilocybe matching P. pellicolusa please smell it.
If you detect a scent reminiscent of Anethole (anise) please preserve a specimen or two for study and please PM me.

The oyster mushrooms I find typically darken as they age. So maturity is a likely explanation.

Another possibility is that they are another species. There are several very similar species near Pleurotus ostreatus.

Happy mushrooming!

Happy mushrooming!
