When: 2010-06-20
No herbarium specimen

Notes: Several of these large, stalked mushrooms were found in a patch under deciduous trees. Some had fallen over; others were upright. They seemed unusually heavy and one weighed almost a pound. The caps were hemispherical and very spongy, and up to 6" across. The upper surface was gray and short-hairy. Yhe concave undersurface was white. In a few areas thick-walled white pores were evident; in most areas no pores or teeth were present but the white surface looked rough. The stalk was stout, 1 1/4" diameter near the cap and 2 1/2" near the ground. The cut aurface of lthe cap showed a white layer of flesh about 1 1/2" at the thickest near the center and a 3/8" brown pore layer
