Branched Oyster MushroomPleurotus cornucopiae is a species of edible fungus in the genus Pleurotus, It is quite similar to the better-known Pleurotus ostreatus, and like that species is cultivated and sold in markets in Europe and China, but it is distinguished because its gills are very decurrent, forming a network on the stem. The species name means "of the Cornucopia" (Horn of Plenty), which is appropriate since the mushrooms are edible and sometimes take on a shape similar to a drinking horn. This mushroom is saprobic on dead wood and can also be a weak parasite. It occurs stumps and fallen trunks of oak, beech, elm, and other broad-leaved trees. Appearing from spring to late summer, it is distributed in the wild throughout Europe, where it varies locally between common and fairly rare. It is also reported from the U.S. and Mexico.
