is behind the times. Maybe not. The article is a good read at any rate. I have found Sparassis in the East which was confirmed by Gilbertson as S. crispa but then maybe he did not separate the two. I know what I have seen in the PNW was huge compared to the football sized ones in Ohio and Pa.

index fungorum sez it’s crispa…

Makes the most likely possible name for this as Sparassis radicata. It is the more common western species. But the two are very close…
