Observation - IMG_8615 - UK and Ireland. Description: This fungi seems to be continuing to grow and I have now measured it to be 60cms across.

This fungi seems to be continuing to grow and I have now measured it to be 60cms across. I can not see that it is attached to anything, though I have not lifted it for fear of damaging it. I can't see anything similar on the web and would really like to know what it is. The second image shows it in context at the side of the road.
17 Jan 2013 - almost 3 months after first spotting this lovely fungi, it is still going strong, though it seems to have stopped growing. We've had severe frosts and snow, but though its beginning to look a bit tired, its still appears to be alive.
