I photographed these huge mushrooms at May Prairie State Natural Area less than 2 miles from where I grew up near Manchester, Tennessee.
This mushroom, also called Stump Blossoms, is found in hardwood forests of eastern North America, often near the bases of oaks.
I was unable to find any references of this mushroom occurring in Florida, but it might.
Berkley's polypore can have one to five caps growing from a single stem, with a cluster width from 25-80cm (10 - 31.5 in.). For more information on these fungi see the Mushroom Expert page for this species. Bondarzewia berkeleyi used to be classified as Polyporus berkeleyi. The genus is named for Russian botanist, mycologist and phytopathologist Apollinari S. Bondarzew (1877-1968). The species is named for British mycologist M. J. Berkeley (1803-1889).
