Im an amateur with mushrooms and just starting to study trees. Unfortunately i do not know which type of tree it was growing on. Also the interior flesh was severely degraded from bugs which is. Why i did not bother taking a picture of the pore surface or flesh. Thank you for the observations they look pretty close to what i have found. In hoping to fund more specimens this weekend or next year because it was truly beautiful in person and i would like to get a definite id
