Large funnel looking mushroom. This is the biggest mushroom Ive ever seen. The cap is over 6 inches across, the stem is over 1 inch round and the gills are so thick. The cap is also funnel shaped and dished toward the center. The cap is fibrous too.
This one was on the edge of a mixed forest with hardwood, longleaf pine and sloped toward a river that was about 25-50 feet away. The mushroom was growing out of the soil.
Spotted at River Creek WMA near Thomasville, GA
