You'd think it'd be easy to ID fungi, but it's NOT! The terminology messes me up. I'm guessing this is an oyster mushroom, but I really have no idea.

ps 01/01/11 - I'm fairly sure about the oyster mushroom ID and have added names and embedded links above. It has a different look to me from the oyster mushrooms in this post, but who am I to argue?
