White oyster mushrooms have a broad, fan or oyster-shaped cap spanning 5–15 cm; natural specimens range from white to gray or tan to dark-brown. Its margin is in-rolled when young, and is smooth and often somewhat lobed or wavy. Its flesh is white, firm, and varies in thickness due to stipe arrangement. The gills of the mushroom are white to cream, and descend on the stalk if present. If so, the stipe is off-center with a lateral attachment to wood.
