large whitish mushroom with a vague resemblance to cauliflower
collected in Lane Co., Oregon
Fruiting Body: 10-60 cm broad; composed of tightly packed branches which arise from a common basal structure (which measures up to 30 cm long, tapering into the ground); branches fairly short and tightly packed, thin, whitish to yellowish or tan, evenly colored.Spore Print: Whitish.
They generally grow on wood, such as fir, but this had been collected for display so I can't say for sure what this one was on. I've not been lucky enough to find one in quite a while.
Awesome mushroom! What was it growing on?
