Gymnopilus Spectabilis?
    #3302531 - 10/31/04 10:27 PM (12 years, 6 months ago)

I found this big guy growing out of a dead cottonwood stump. It has been pretty cold, so he's kinda cracked up. Cap is about 5 inches across, stem about 2 and a half inches long. Stem is white. Don't have a sporeprint yet. It has a fairly distinct odor, however I don't know how to describe it. You can see the gills are attatched and the cap almost has a leopard pattern on it.


I'll get back about the sporeprint.

With it being dried out like that it will probably be tough to get a good spore print. In general it resembles any of several species of Pholiota. If so, not active, not something you want to eat.

Happy mushrooming!
