Coremiopleurotus (Pleurotus cystidiosus O.K. Miller) is studied for its taxonomic, cultural, molecular features and nutraceutical attributes and illustrated based on collection from Patiala in Punjab (India). It is a wood decaying edible basidiomycetous mushroom, characterized by the formation of specialized anamorphic structures called coremia. Internal transcribed spacer (ITS) region sequencing studies carried out showed highest identity with Pleurotus cystidiosus strain ACCC 51280. The aerial mycelium of the mushroom (anamorph) form toxocyst, which is a specialized feature of P. cystidiosus subsp. abalonus Zervakis, a hitherto unreported variant of dhingri mushroom from India.
