Hello Glennie,

   First of all I'm not an expert, but it doesn't seems a pleurotus eringii . I think that it may belongs to the Russula┬┤s family. ( Mi last exam in the university , many years ago, included a question about "seta de cardo" and this is one of the specimens that i can identified quite sure).

Hi Glennie

Definitely not seta de cardo.  If it is from the Russula family (which it looks possible) the only one that is edible that I know of is russula cyanoxantha 'Charcoal Burner', this has a purple flush to the stem which your photo specimens dont seem to have.
