fall oysters?

are there any look-alikes? I believe I found a nice cluster on the way home from work yesterday but when I knocked one down and checked it out, it didnt have the same smell I always notice with spring oysters. So I was a little unsure if they were actually oysters and left them there. They were growing on a dead elm with some of the bark missing. The mushrooms were very firm and the edges were still curnled underneath... Unfortunately no pictures. Thanks to anyone who can help.

Re: fall oysters?

I had the same "problem" with my last batch of oysters. When I first picked them they didn't smell like oysters. After awhile the oyster scent developed. We ate some the other night, not dead yet.

thanks for the help. I think if they still look fresh next time I go by, I'll stop and grab them and go from there.

Re: fall oysters?

There are some orange false oysters, and angel wings, which from what I've read anyways you shouldn't eat. I don't think you would really think either of those were real oyster mushrooms though.

Re: fall oysters?

I was also hoping to find my 1st Oyster Mushroom last weekend.

One thing that I read which made me suspicious of anything that I found was that the gills on the bottom of the mushroom should go all the way down the stem. (Decurrent Gills)

I've also read that there are different edible varieties of the Oyster mushroom.
