Collection location: Santa Catalina Island, California, USA [Click for map]
Found in between large, mature Quercus pacifica in a valley overlooking Avalon (pictures of leaves and view from observation location below). At first glance it looked like a bolete, but my hand was covered in rusty orange-brown spores when I touched the pileus. I’ve never seen anything like it. Very large specimen.

nice to see photos of the associated trees and area.
That is an amazing fungus. Can you estimate the size of the spore ball and length of the stalk?
