Observation 8148: Tylopilus P. Karst.

This fungi was unusually large compared to most I have seen. There were smaller examples nearby but I think they might be a slightly different species. This larger specimen was by itself and I was unable to find anymore in the vicinity the same in size and makeup.

This is a nice example of Phlebopus. Would it be OK for me to borrow this for a publication? Of course I would give you appropriate credit for the photo.

According to Bruce Fuhrer, this species can have a cap over one meter in diameter and weigh 29 kg; over 63 pounds! It is the largest terrestrial fungus in Australia.

They get larger yet!
