    Just wondering if someone can positively identify these as oysters? I am in central illinois and have never found them before. Thanks https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=1579988185555432&set=a.1391712451049674.1073741829.100006327974024&type=1&theater

    You could "GOOGLE" oyster images and see alot of different pictures of them too... Happy Hunting,but be careful eating anything ya don't positively know.

    Yes they are in water, they were half on a rotted log and half growing out of the base in dirt

    The ones floating in water look like Blewets ( Clitocybe nuda )
