Observation 207294: Calvatia Fr.

When: 2015-06-19

Collection location: Fonda Vela Hotel, Monteverde, Puntarenas, Costa Rica [Click for map]

Who: Dulce (Monteverde Wild Hikes)

No specimen available

Notes:
Huge, very orange mushroom like a puff ball on the side of the main road at Ficus Trails. Found by Juan Daniel Araya, a doctor and his wife while in a day hike. None of us have ever seen something like that so we had to stop and get pictures.
Several little ones were growing near it too.
Tonight when I went to check on it with some visitors during our guided walk, it looked like something deflated the large one and it was dark brown.
