Jianshui, China: A giant grey fungus weighing more than 15kg has been found by villagers in China’s Jianshui County, in the southwest Yunnan province.

the large clump of mushrooms, which numbered over 100 caps attached at the base of their stems, caused excitement among locals, who gathered to take photographs of the unusual site.

The fungus, which measured nearly 1m in diameter, was put on display by the finder, the BBC reported.

“I guess this mushroom can be entered into the Guinness World Records,” said one woman who was taking photographs.

It is not known what type of fungus it is or whether it is safe to eat.–BBC
