The Pink Oyster Mushroom in NZ

  Posted on 04 July 2020  |    Hyphae  |    0 Comments

The Pink Oyster Mushroom is an exotic mushroom that is sometimes known as the Pink Flamingo. Pleurotus. djamor is a 'species complex', this is an old name with no fixed usage (original from Indonesia around 1650). No modern epitype of P. djamor has been designated so the use of that name is fluid.

In other words "P. djamor is many species and not one speices, a family"

Pleurotus djamor clade also includes New Zealand's endemic mushroom Pleurotus parsonsiae (the giant oyster).

The Pink oyster mushroom is banned in western Australia.
