Big Mushroom ID
    #8508651 - 06/10/08 08:56 PM (12 years, 8 months ago)

I found this mushroom growing on a wet log today. I am wondering if anyone could give me a hand identifying it.

Habitat: An old wood log

Gills: Pores, off white

Stem: White, 1 inch in diameter, and firm

Cap: 7 inches across, smooth and firm. Tan with very light rings around the center. Slight depression in the center as well

Spore Print: White

Bruising: None was observed. There are small black spots but I think those might be wood

Location: Florida

Additionally, it has a wonderful fragrant smell. Here are some pictures:
















Thanks!

Yeah I didn't expect it to be active, but I would love if it were edible :drooling:

Any blackening at the stem base?

Try this key:

There's some dirt and wood, but no blackening as far as I can tell. I'm messing around with the key, but unfortunately not getting results that look similar. Interesting tool though.

Looks similar in some of the pictures that I am finding, but these seem to have a darker and smaller cap.

The spore print turned out white it appears. Here are some pictures of the print. The light spores on the aluminum foil are not particularly easy to photograph or see though :lol:
