Scientific name: Hypsizygus ulmarius
Synonyms: Elm Oyster, Shirotamogitake, Da Yu Mo
The elm oyster is distributed all over the temperate climate zones in deciduous and mixed woodland where it grows mainly on elm, beech or oak trees. During the last centuries the population decreased, so it is not advisable to collect this mushroom from the woods.
Wheat straw, hardwood (most suitable: oak, beech, plum, maple, elm, birch, alder, ash)

The colour of the fruiting bodies is white to light grey or light brown, depending on substrate and habitat.
