We do have some oyster mushrooms growing on a dying willow tree. I assume it was from spores from my hobby mushrooms. The mushrooms we have had spore here from is King Oyster(King Trumpet), multiple oyster mushrooms,a variety of different kinds of shiitake and wine caps.This mushroom smells just like a healthy woodland mushroom.Would love to take a spore print and cultivate it but if it's poisonous I'll skip it.
Any clues what it is? I am in Central Illinois.
