Meet the A-Line Dress. All about all-over printing.
This specimen was alive and growing for at least a month. I hope the ID is correct. Date of this picture is Nov. 19, 2008, and it was taken in a mixed hardwood forest in Green Lane, Pa.

a MONTH!?! WOW! Weather must have been outstanding….what a gorgeous fellow! Locally, the ones here get munched on almost as soon as they sprout out. Isn’t this just…one of the MOST amazing fungi forms??? Have you touched them to feel the texutre? so soft when fresh
It started out fairly small and kept on growing – guess no one was hungry:>). When I saw it I had no idea what it was – thought it looked like a powder puff. I did manage to find it in the field guides, although there are a couple that are quite a bit alike and that’s when I get things wrong. There hasn’t been another since, but I will lovingly feel it if one does grow where I can find it. MUSHROOMS RULE
What an amazing fungi! I’ve never seen it let alone knew it even existed. lol! I’m so glad you posted it. :)
It grew to an impressive ten inches wide. It is the first one I’ve ever seen, but then, I was a working gal and didn’t get to spend much time wandering about. I really appreciate your visit!
my fingers itch to reach out and touch it. Great capture of fascinating mushroom. It looks like a cheerleader dropped her pompom.
Hahahaha – you’re right! Carla said to feel it if I came upon another. How do I explain to my more sane friends that I want to get “touchy-feely” with a mushroom (but I really do want pat one)!
Beautiful shot and so well composed!
Your kind comment made my morning bright – thank you, Mischa
Awesome capture, I’ve never seen anything like it :-)
I expected to find more but never have – isn’t that always how it goes! Thank you so much for the generous comment. Hope I find another this year so I can touch it and tell Carla I did:>)
WOW! An amazing mushroom! ( or is it a fungus??) I love what nature has created in mushrooms , toadstools and fungi!!
Hi, Heather. I watched it grow, and grow, and then grow some more until it was huge. It is a mushroom:>). Apparently it also could have been a meal but I’m no expert and won’t eat any mushroom – just in case.
Don’t forget to submit to our April Features challenge
WOW! Thanks, Carla!
oo oo oo!If you remember the location of this one? This coming year same time/same place you SHOULD have another! They retun as long as the host tree is sill there.
I will do that for sure – it would be such fun to see it again (and feel it).
Congratulations! Your beautiful fungi and image was voted into the TOP10 of the White as snow One fungi only challenge Kind regards from Esther
