Who: Daniel B. Wheeler (Tuberale)

No specimen available

Found this Hericium erinaceus growing on a Bigleaf maple tree growing about 6 feet off the ground in a wound of where a large branch had once been. Fungus was the largest H.e. I’ve ever seen, easily 10 inches tall and 8 inches wide. This is a closeup of the rather old specimen.
