Genus: Undescribed
Pleurotus djamor Pleurotus species
Genus: Hohenbuehelia
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 break. Distinguished microscopically by the presence of metuloids on the gills, face often encrusted with crystals.
