Collection location: Oakman, Georgia, USA [Click for map]
Two mushrooms spotted beneath hardwoods on a hillside in a dense mixed hardwood/pine forest in Northwest Georgia (Gordon County), US. The first four photos are of the smaller specimen. Cap is brown to cinnamon-toned and slightly fuzzy. Underside of cap is white to cream with very flat (I’d say squamous?) pores that extend down the stipe. Stipe is more of a blush to pale gold tone. Flesh is white. No bruising occurs on cap, flesh, or stipe. Cap flavor is very pleasant and mild. I’m still waiting on a spore print.
The other specimen is GIGANTIC, and some wildlife had already gotten to it. The stipe has darkened to a dark cinnamon brown, and the cap is less fuzzy (and more leathery) than the younger specimen’s. Stipe is around 7 cm diameter at thickest point. Height of mushroom is around 22 cm!
Any help with an ID is much appreciated!
