The Oyster Mushroom, Pleurotus pulmonarius, is harvested by many people. It is typically found on the trunks of trees, often alders, both in spring and fall. Be VERY CAREFUL what mushrooms you eat, and only rely on an expert for identification. Many species are poisonous or can make you sick, and people vary in how they respond to particular species. Similar looking species to this on are poisonous.
