Description: Original observation #2007790 (iNaturalist)
Occurrence Remarks: Very large gilled mushroom (a bit larger than a softball) growing out of a fallen cottonwood tree. I did notice another mass off white though it appeared even larger but no stem visible. Sorry no spore print or gill shots. This was the only specimen I saw and being in such awe I did not remove it.
