I found this mushroom growing on a Arizona Black Walnut tree, the elevation is about 6000ft the Temperature ranges from -20 F in the winter to 110 F in the summer. This is a private walnut orchard!!! It’s the only tree right now that has this. I don’t want to destroy on the chance it’s beneficial for the tree which I suspect it is, so no spore print for now.

Any mushroom growing on a living tree is a sign that the inside of the tree is infested with a substantial amount of fungal mycelium.  The branch with the mushroom is doomed to eventually rot inside and fall down.  The mycelium is likely to have spread to the main trunk as well.  I trust that you do not live in the trailer house beside the tree.  It may take several years for the rot to proceed far enough to be dangerous.

Very cool, thank you for the info I will be researching immensely. The trailer is abandoned, and soon to be removed.
