Observation 4837: Gymnopilus spectabilis (Fr., Singer) J. Holec
When: 2007-11-06
No herbarium specimen

Notes: large mushroom, clustered in lawn under oaks, strong fungal odor
ST: 50×11-15mm, inflated a bit in middle and tapering to both top and bottom, pale bright yellow above ring, cap-colored below ring with brown striations (fibrils?), solid, paler inside
CAP: to 60mm or much more, becoming plane, dry, smooth to somewhat tacky, golden buff to brown, patchy due to dissolved darker fibrils or scales
FLESH: up to 10mm thick in center, pale yellow, unchanging, firm
VEIL: partial, cap-colored short skirt-like ring near top of stalk
GILL: pale somewhat livid yellow, notched to slightly decur, 5mm deep, somewhat closely spaced, unbranched, rather clean and even, bruising brown
SPORE: print rusty brown

Basing ID on spore print, stature, color, annulus. I’m assuming the things are growing on buried wood.
