Pleurotus sp. Rock Creek Park, Washington, DC, USA.
Cantharel mushroom lookalike, big bunches growing on a dead tree stump in my garden. Someone opted it is from the Pleurotacease family, they are big so i thought it could be the Djamor variant which is edible, its not pink but cream in colour. Would love to know if I can eat them. So if you know more about these please let me know
