big shroom
    #11310244 - 10/24/09 07:44 AM (8 years, 2 months ago)

Found a giant mushroom :grin: This is the biggest mushroom i ever saw first hand.
Habitat: Found on Borneo island, grow on soil. Quite rare to find here, so far i only came across this 3 times.
Gills: Close together
Stem: 1 inch thick, 5 inch long
Cap: 12 inch across
Spore print color: I wait more than 24 hours but fail to get spore print. >.<
Bruising: Nothing detected
Other: Quite strong scent, i take it to my room and its filled with the scent. No volva or ring. Its not really fragile but certainly cannot survive being thrown to rock. Sorry, i only have phone camera >.<

young



Mature. I wait 4 days in between from the first 2 picture to this.




Any idea to narrow down this? I was thinking its Giant Clitocybes but few thing are off like the cap color and stem length.

Maybe a Paxillus?

Search that on wiki, some of its description match like the gills but some other did not. Like bruising, it did not darken. The cap also not sticky even when wet. This one may be overgrown but isn't it a bit too big for paxillus?

Those kind of leaf is a bit round and usually around 5 inch. That dead log near it is rubber tree. That small mushroom next to it is also the same type.

I don't know all the species of Paxillus, and sometimes mushrooms grow larger than normal. The form reminds me of that genus. I really have no clue as to what mushrooms might grow in Borneo. Sorry.

How about Leucopaxillus giganteus or closely related?

Borneo have a tropical climate. Around 27C, no snow, heavy rain, high altitude.

Thats what i think, Leucopaxillus giganteus or Giant Clitocybe. Well, some book suggest they are the same. Doesn't matter, it have about the same edibility :tongue: But those cap are off.
