In early October my partner mentioned they had seen a solitary mushroom emerging from a wound in an elm tree on our local trail. This especially interested me because of the Muskoka Mushroom Mystery. I took my camera up there to get some pictures on site before collecting the specimen to clone for possible cultivation. Mystery solved. Perhaps, but this raised another question for me, because I thought I knew the Elm Oyster. I had bought some Elm Oyster H ulmarius liquid culture from Gallboys on Amazon in and I have been growing it quite successfully ever since.

Cap: cm wide; at first convex with inrolled margin, becoming flat; white, then light tan; surface becoming cracked with age and forming patches or scales ;growing from branch scars of living hardwoods, especially elm. Gills attached to stem, not decurrent running down stalk ; white becoming cream. Stalk: cm long, cm thick, smooth or occasionally hairy, white, solid, central or off-center. Lookalikes : Hypsizygus tessulatus — much smaller, grows in clusters Pleurotus ostreatus group — no stalk to short stalk; gills decurrent Pleurotus elongatipes — longer stalk which becomes hollow. This is a large, sturdy mushroom growing from the branch scars of deciduous trees. This one was found in City Park in Denver Colorado, about 10 feet up on an elm tree.
Although the mushrooms involved are not particularly difficult to recognize, there has been a lot of confusion in field guides and technical treatments about Hypsizygus tessulatus and its close relative Hypsizygus ulmarius. Both of these species grow from the wood of hardwoods and feature medium-sized, pale, convex caps, along with white spore prints. Additionally, the former species often features watery spots on the cap when fresh, and is most often found on aspens, cottonwoods, and sugar maple —while the latter species does not feature watery spots and usually grows on elms or box elder. Hypsizygus marmoreus and Hypsizygus elongatipes are synonyms; the former name is often used to refer to a cultivated, commercially available version. Regarding the putative "medicinal" properties of this mushroom: I am sorry to put it this bluntly, but this mushroom is not going to cure your cancer, nor any other ailment you may have—and if someone has sold you a product based on the assumption that it will, you have purchased some snake oil from a witting or unwitting charlatan.
