Observation 51362: Sparassis spathulata (Schwein.) Fr.

When: 2010-08-25

Collection location: Tallman State Park, New York, USA [Click for map]

Who: damon brunette (damonbrunette)

No specimen available

I didnt take many pictures of this, as i thought it was S. crispa. Ive only seen two in NY (in conifer forest) so i was pleasantly surprised to find that it was the other species! Though its always written up as a choice edible, ive cooked S. crispa three times with no success of making it taste good. This specimen i found today did NOT have a pleasant odor, and i cant figure out if they are just too old, or if this is folklore. Found at the base of an oak.
