When: 2013-08-31

Collection location: Perry, Maine, USA [Click for map]

Who: Terri Clements/Donna Fulton (pinonbistro)

No specimen available

On ground in mixed woods. Cap 16 cm., cream with yellow orange cast, wavy, inrolled margin. Spines decurrent, cream and up to 11 mm, bruising yellow brown. Stem 3 cm. wide x ? (collector cut it in error). Cap flesh white, firm to brittle not tough, bruising yellow brown. No odor. Mild to slightly bitter taste. KOH on cap negative. I thought this looked like H. repandum but didn’t think it was because of the size. I was surprised to learn that they can be this big.
