King Oyster Mushroom

Pleurotus Eryngii

Description:

Approximately 5-6 cm tall. Spore print appeared white.

Habitat:

Roadside next to a stump with more specimens possibly growing from the stump, it was hard to tell.

Notes:

A surprising find here in Michigan, the king oyster isn't native to here at all.

Thanks for the friendly comments guys! And thanks to CorduneanuVlad for the ID. I would never have guessed this was a non-native oyster mushroom just growing roadside.
