Hi all

I have a large mushroom growing in my front yard here in Pa that I have
identified from Bessette et al as Sparassis Crispa. Not being a native of
North America (ie I am from Australia) I was wondering
a) Are there other mushroom species that might be mistaken for S. Crispa?
b) Bessette says that S. Crispa is edible and choice. Is there an optimum
time to harvest S. Crispa?
