Mushroom Monday - Cerioporus squamosus - dryad's saddle

Hello, fungi lovers,

Today is Monday and I'll share with you a few photos of recent findings. It is a huge Cerioporus squamosus - dryad's saddle I found today while I was walking down the street. It grows from a hole in a common hackberry tree and it seems to be most likely the maximum size for this type of mushroom.

These taste pretty good when they are smaller.

Yes, but I very rarely come across them, especially the young.
Cheers.

When I look for morels in spring is usually when I find the smaller ones.

I know they start growing in May but still -- I find them here mostly in September-October.

You've got away with a splendid mature edition of D.saddle; agree, it has grown to a size which is not suitable for cooking purposes any more.
