Oysters

I do beleive I found my first ever Oyster. I just got a Field Guide to shrooms booklet and have been studying it everyday. The ones I found were on a broken off tree. And found some more on the other half of the tree that was on the ground. I'm doing my first spore print as we speak. The shroom has a pleasant smell. Amost like a spicy white store bought mushroom. I've ruled out the Jack - O- Lantern. Which is poisinous. And the Orange Mock Oyster. But I'm excited and nervous all in the same breath about it.

birrdybrad,

Jack O Lanterns are orange and don't nest up in the tree. Also, we are a little early for the "nasty" jack. I also see the Orange Mock Oyster later on in the summer, but it's good that you are using a field guide to sort out the 100% ID for yourself. Look at the pictures of the oyster in the photo section of the board as well. Take that sporeprint. Do watch for the pin holes in the stiipe and the little tiny black pepper specks in the oyster's cap. Those are maggot's heads. The thing is once you identify the oyster and the most likely damaged bta they grow on, they are readily found often times in mass this time of year. After a while, you will be able to pretty much tell the fresh ones just by looking at them without cutting them down.
