This was so large that initially I thought it was a lump of polystyrene or something. Large, white, spongy, really just an outsized mushroom. It must have been over 18 inches across. The last photo is my dog sitting next to it for scale.


Caution: Do NOT use iSpot to identify fungi to eat!

Some fungi are very poisonous so a mistaken ID could have serious consequences.
