for a shiny pearlescent luster; not sure if this is a verified characteristic. I also chose that name because this thing was so big. My other observation of the same name was on ornamental wood chips.

The largest fruiting of what I have ever IDed as P. petasatus was on ornamental wood chips. The cap surface for a mushroom of this type tends to be white with dark scales. But MushroomExpert says that the scales develop as the darkened disc breaks apart.
