Who: AmatoxinApocalypse (AmatoxinApocalypse)

No specimen available

I am calling this Gymnopilus junonius based on the size and the heavy blue and green staining seen on these specimens.

The largest cap was 8 inches across, the stems were incredibly thick.

Sensu stricto does not bruise blue. No magic in him.
This name should be changed to g.j. sensu lato or to appropriate Gymnopilus species from that group.

With that pileus texture I’d be confident with G. speciosissimus

Nice gyms!

Very cool I hope to find these one day, I’m in upstate SC, so they grow here as well? Any advice on where to find them much appreciated
