Abstract:

Mushroom is a macro fungus with a distinctive fruiting body which can be either epigeous or hypogeous and large enough to be seen with naked eye and to be picked by hand. The oyster mushroom (Pleurotus sp.) is highly suitable for commercial cultivation in subtropical regions of the world. They occur seasonally all over the world in various habitats such as humus rich soils, decaying plant litter and wood logs in forests as well as in meadows. The current study deals with the studies on survey, morphological and molecular characterization. The collected samples were further identified as Pleurotus cystidiosus on the basis of morphological characters like pileus colour, diameter, shape, stipe colour, length, diameter, gills attachment and spore print. The molecular identification methods gave the similar results, in which strains of oyster mushroom was similar with Pleurotus cystidiosus strain P-24.
