California Fungi—Pleurotus ostreatus Pleurotus ostreatus: © Michael Wood -- click for larger image
(Photo: © Michael Wood)

Pleurotus ostreatus (Jacq.) Quélet
Champ. Jura. Vosg. 1: 112. 1872.

Common Name: oyster mushroom

  • Pileus

    Cap 5-25 cm broad, fan-shaped, broadly convex to sometimes nearly plane at maturity; margin lobed to wavy, especially when young; surface smooth, white to greyish-brown; flesh white, odor of anise.

  • Lamellae

    Gills decurrent, white, yellowish in age; veil absent.

  • Stipe

    Stipe often absent, when present, short and thick: 0.5-3.0 cm long, 0.5-2.0 cm thick, eccentric or lateral with dense white hairs at the base.

  • Spores

    Spores 7.5-9 x 3.5-4.5 µm, smooth, elliptical, nonamyloid. Spore print white.

  • Habitat

    Forming overlapping shelves or clusters on stumps and logs of hardwoods, uncommon on conifers, from early fall to mid- winter. Pleurotus ostreatus is a member of the "Fog Flora" fruiting sporadically along the coast during the summer.

  • Edibility

    Edible Edible and very popular, although a few people are allergic to it.

  • Comments

    Pleurotus ostreatus is believed to be a species complex. In the California, specimens can be found that vary from white and relatively thin-fleshed on oaks to thick fleshed, grey-brown shelves on cottonwood and willow. Whether these differences are environmentally induced or genetic is not clear, but most mycophagists prefer the large, thick-fleshed specimens collected from cottonwood.
