Mukitake AKA Olive Oysterling

Panellus serotinus

Description:

Growing on a birch species, they were about 3-4cm across and unlike my previous spottings of this mushroom the cap was dry not slimy. In Japanese culture Mukitake is considered one of the most delicious edible mushrooms and a study has shown extracts of this fungus prevents non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) in leptin-resistant db/db mice: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles...
