Need ID on a Vermont mushroom!
    #4247112 - 06/02/05 08:03 AM (11 years, 4 months ago)

This was found growing on a partially rotted log(either a Birch or Maple,not sure).
The spore print was white, as far as I could tell(it really didn't give a good enough print to be sure on the color of it-it was almost dried out).
It has a "Fruity" smell to it.
This thing weighed about 7 pounds!
Sorry if the pics are too small-I'm using someone elses camera and computer.
I know this isn't the best description-but it is all I can give.Hope it is enuf,lol.
The aroma it gives off is quite pleasing to the nose.
It is really "Meaty", and solid-not hollow.

Hope someone can ID this from what info I have given,lol.

Thanks in advance!

:cool: :thumbup:

Looks like polyporus squamosus to me. Appears to be edible when very young, although the mushroom is of no significant culinary value.
