A presumed Broad Gill (Megacollybia rodmanii) in New Germany SP, Garrett Co., Maryland (6/1/2013). Identified by Lance Biechele. Notes from Lance: 'It appears to be Megacollybia platyphylla, although recent DNA studies have suggested that it probably is not the same mushroom as the one found in Europe, so the name has been changed to M. rodmani. This should be a large, white-gilled mushroom, always growing on/in dead hardwood.' Photo by Matt Tillett. (MBP list)
