Just a lovely oyster mushroom in Quabbin.
It was misting yesterday morning and I thought it was worth getting out and seeing whatever I could see. Well, it rained fairly hard for a short time and things got pretty wet, but this oyster mushroom was worth seeing. There were several on the trunk but I liked the curl on this one that gave a nice view of the gill structure. I think that it’s most likely a late fall oyster mushroom (Panellus serotinus) because of the time of year but they usually have a bit more color to them, often with some green/blue tinge.
