Notes: Beautiful thick reticulations on these specimens. Whenever I think about reticulate evolution, I am reminded of Rhodotus palmatus.

Thank you for the nomination Robert. That’s a tough crowd of photo critics over at Wikipedia.
Update: #46774 has been chosen as a Featured Picture on Wikipedia. Also, because it was part of a “Did you know” feature, it was on Wiki’s front page for about 6 hours (during prime time), where it was seen by several million people (and some small fraction of those will have read the picture description and further checked out the MO site). If you’re interested in reading the featured picture voting, see here: http://en.wikipedia.org/...
I have seen them fruiting mostly under cover of weeds and briers, with a higher canopy of mixed hardwoods, sometimes with pine. These were growing on what is probably an elm log in the shade of pines and low wet ground weeds.
i have tried to cultivate this mushroom, only several fruitbodies came into my eye, hard to domesticate.
Thank you Robert! These are such spectacular specimens. I’m glad you made a home for them on Wiki.
Interesting read. I was a little surprised to find so much taxonomical confusion around such a distinctive species.
at least six feet! And the taste is like Ambrosia, You wouldn’t believe it!!!
Truly amazing fungi. It would make a good lead role in the latest aliens movie.
What a beautiful shot, what an amazing fungus! Lichenologists around the world are feeling jealous right now and they probably don’t know why…
