Original_Herbarium_Label: Volvariella bombycina (Schaeff.) Singer
Other: Growing on an old snag of Douglas-fir (Pseudotsuga menziesii). In the literature, more often reported from deciduous trees. We have not seen it since. The fruiting might have been induced by the unusually wet August and September 2004.

I found several of these in 2010 but took no pictures.Finding one on that host species is odd.

Very good find, especially on that host.
