These mushrooms range throughout Florida except for in the Keys. Found in temperate and sub-tropical forests worldwide, mainly from April through September in most of its range, but can be found later in warmer climates such as Florida.
Pleurotus pulmonarius grows in shelf-like clusterson both live and dead hardwoods. Caps are white, beige or pale tan, 3-10cm (1-3/16 to 4 in.) across, initially convex, becoming flattish or slightly depressed. The whitish gills run down the stem and can become yellowish with age. The white stem is sometimes nearly non-existent.
