Veiled oyster?


Recommended Posts

I think that could be a veiled oyster, I'm not super familiar with them I think I've only seen them once or twice, the cap is supposed to have a "frosted" appearance, which I'm not sure I'm seeing. But I rarely see such large specimens of summer oysters, and to see just one also seems strange. If you leave it sitting on a piece of tinfoil it will drop a spore print, this will help ID it, although it won't eliminate the other oyster species as possibilities. Other members might be able to offer more help.

I believe what you have is either P. Dryinus or P. levis. From what I know they’re somewhat difficult to distinguish. I don’t have first hand experience with these . I helped someone ID these years ago here in Louisiana from shared pictures....  

I don’t believe these are Lentinus. Note the gills on your specimen. I would say they are not irregular nor serrated
