|A Fleshy to tough fan-shaped fungi, sessile or with stripe, colours dull or absent. There are a number of species in New Zealand, which I have found very difficult to identify. Some of them are considered to be edible.|
|I find the Pleurotus to be wonderfull fungi to photograph |
check these out.
|These saprobic fungi are similar to Pleurotus in appearance but much smaller with crowded gills and white spores. They also have a gelatinous layer beneath the cap which makes them quite tough to brake. Distinguished microscopically by the presence of metuloids on the gills face often encrusted with crystals.|
