Pleurotus confirmation

Recommended Posts

I have hunted morels my entire life, but I am a newcomer to chanterelles and oyster mushrooms. We recently acquired property that is mostly populated with tulip poplar, oak, beech, ash, elm and walnut. Cedar is scattered sporadically. I thought I would give summer/fall mushrooming a whirl. I found a couple of small chanterelle patches so far (golden and cinnabar)- and what I think are oyster mushrooms, if someone could help confirm. I don't want to mistake Angel's Wings for Chanterelles. Spore prints precede specimen they belong to.

Compare to Pleurotus pulmonarius, summer oyster mushroom.

I have, prior to posting here and they both have such similar characteristics. I am particularly concerned about positively identifying the one on the stick rather than the stumps. When comparing the Angel's wings to oysters, without the experience of having both side by side to touch, smell, etc...how do you differentiate when the two are so similar?
