Habitat: mixed forest, northern WI. These have been popping up all over the place. Seen around 30 of them in a one acre area. Found one the size of a baseball before it opened, 10-12" across when it was mature. This is the third year in a row I've seen these in the same spot.
The black flies seem to love these mushrooms.
The photos don't do them justice. Huge bulbous base , white spore print, the rest you can see in the pics-
