iNaturalist Research Grade Observations
Catalog #: 3060509
Taxon: Peziza proteana var. sparassoides (Boud.) Seaver
Family: Pezizaceae
ID Remarks: The only reference I found in Mushroom Observer. C.Schwartz was kind enough to point me in the right direction on this as I originally thought it might be a frost bitten Cauliflower mushroom of the genus Sparassis. The fruiting body was extremely dense/heavy. I have dried down some slices to keep for sequencing.
