Observation 147636: Calvatia gigantea (Batsch) Lloyd
When: 2003-07-12
Collection location: Utah, USA [Click for map]
No herbarium specimen

Notes: from http://coo.fieldofscience.com/2012/05/mushroom-tree.html

Date inferred from EXIF data. The image is hosted in an index (http://herb.linkrealms.com/) which contains a variety of personal images, all presumably belonging to one Herb Flower (pseudonym?), founder of Mythyn Interactive, LLC, based in Riverton, Utah. Given the space this image shares among various hiking and goat camping photos, all shot in believably Utonian settings, the location is assumed to be somewhere in Utah.

If/when I can contact Mr. Flower or direct his attention to this observation, we may know more.
