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.

Genus: Hohenbuehelia
line
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.
