Some type of oyster?
    #3316844 - 11/03/04 10:07 PM (12 years, 1 month ago)

Found inside a hollow maple log.

White spore print. Spores oval almost round. Attatched gills that show through as ridges on the edges of the tops of the caps. Edges of caps yellowed when handled.

Found in October nights in the 40's and 50's.

Nope. Those look like one of the many all white species of Clitocybe. They are *very* difficult to tell apart, even with a microscope. Other possibilities that are also difficult to separate from each other are Leucopaxillus and Lyophyllum. Of all those, only the Lyophyllum species is really edible, and it's not really worth the effort. The Clitocybes include species that contain dangerous levels of muscarine.

Because of the good possibility of them being very poisonous, DO NOT EAT.

Happy mushrooming!

Happy mushrooming!
