Angel wing or an oyster mushroom - Western Oregon

Recommended Posts

Hello folks,

First post here and appreciate any assistance.

I'm wanting to ID some mushrooms that are on my property behind the house. I'm on a few acres in Western Oregon - just outside of Portland. These mushrooms are growing on dead Big Leaf Maple trees.

They grow both in the Spring (now) and in the fall. Trying to determine if its an Angel Wing variant or if its an Oyster mushroom.


Thanks for the help.

These look like Pleurotus to me (Oyster Mushrooms).

Angel Wings (Pleurocybella porrigens) grows on coniferous wood; the mushrooms tend to be pure white in color.
