Pleurotus pulmonarius  (available on agar plate or liquid culture)

This Pleurotus species, commonly known as the Phoenix Oyster or Indian Oyster,  is a mushroom very similar to Pleurotus ostreatus, the pearl oyster, but with a few noticeable differences. The caps of pulmonarius are much paler and smaller than ostreatus and the mushroom develops more of a stem. P. pulmonarius also prefers warmer weather than ostreatus and will appear later in the summer.
