Clitocybe nebularis?

I’ve seen them fall apart like that when they grow old and too big. The large size + cap color + decurrent gills + white flesh all match. So do the wide maggot tunnels – maggots that live in C. nebularis are always big and fat for some reason.

More data

Hi Daniel, I was shocked when saw it almost perfect split in half. I’m confident that was by natural causes of the specimen. De Split went almost all the way down to the base. Hope it helps. It was a big guy about 30 35 cm diameter.

Need more data.

If only the cap has been split, but not the stipe, this looks like Pluteus. However, if this has been split nearly in half and the gills descend to near the base of the stipe, this is quite another fungus.
