Oyster Mushroom

Pleurotus sp.

Description:

I found these in a couple spots. They had very soft, smooth tan to white caps and wrinkly, decurrent white gills. The one in photo 4 was a little higher on a tree and was being swarmed by mosquitoes for some reason.

Habitat:

One cluster was on a fallen oak tree and the other was about 5.5 to 6 feet up a standing tree near the trail. This forest had a lot of oak, magnolia, and some other hardwoods interspersed. Sweetwater Wetlands Park
