Phyllotopsis nidulans

Common Name: Mock Oyster

Synonyms:

Substrate: Downed Logs

Location: Hardwood Forests

Spore Color: Pinkish

Gill Color: Orange

Comments: 

This mushroom is fairly unique in color. It should have a slightly fuzzy orange surface to the cap, as well as orange gills. It will always be found growing as a shelf off the side of downed logs. 

Lookalikes:  

It is called the mock Oyster, because it resembles Oyster Mushrooms in growth style, if not in color.
