Collection location: Dove Creek Hammock, south Key Largo, Monroe Co., Florida, USA [Click for map]
large shelf mushroom on hardwood stump of unknown tree species
CAP: 150-250mm wide, weakly lumpy and zoned, glabrous, clammy to the touch, varying shades of plain old brown, margin broadly rounded (~10mm thick)
FLESH: white, firm but very watery, exudes water when squeezed, faint concentric rings visible
PORE: pure white, 2-3 per mm, holes small relative to walls, smooth, 0.5mm deep
SPORE: print whitish? — extremely faint if at all
The wateriness suggests Tyromyces, but it is quite firm, like a thick piece of rubber.

In the woods off Jones Road in Dearmanville, just a few feet from the road but down an embankment so you can’t see them from the road.
grows on stumps all over Maryland…, The blunt edge and thickness of the fruit body reminds me of Ischnoderma resinosum.
