Collection location: Cabin Cove, Haywood Co., North Carolina, USA [Click for map]
Found at base of chestnut oak (Quercus montana) on old Asbury Trail down from White Oak Mountain to valley bottom. It was enormous. These were much paler than the others I’ve seen (which are typically yellowish to rusty to cinnamon brown at least in zones near margin).

that it occurs in the same range that eastern US deciduous species of Quercus do.
It is very common in Massachusetts and can get quite large; I saw a Red Oak with three fruiting bodies, each over 18 inches across last week but finding them three-four feet across isn’t unheard of
What is the range of it in the U.S.?
This is an amazing mushroom.
