Really large landable planets: the list. (MK II)

I am currently participating in the Pegasus Run 3305 (Galactic Circumnavigation Expedition) and finally found the time to check my logs (using EDObservatory) for large landable bodies. I found a few and also some older entries from my solo trip to Colonia and Sag A*. I'll figured I best provide this as a table sorted by radius (the links go to EDSM):

Now this is interesting and certainly sets a target for largest possible landable body, I currently hold the record in EDSM for the largest icy body with a radius of 29,895 klms. It's not landable unfortunately, Dryio Flyuae IX-K d8-634 ABCD 2, so it should be possible to at least get a landable body that size since most really large landable bodies are icy bodies. Of course it has a surface gravity of over 12g so that may be a limiting factor, but our largest current landable icy body is just over 25,504 and only 3.4g, with a lower percentage of metal and rock, so it's quite possible there's a nearly 30,000klm radius landable icy planet out there somewhere, that's a nice target to shoot for!

Quite possible. If I remember correctly somebody on the Pegasus Run 3305 (the expedition that I am participating currently as well) mentioned on the Discord that he had discovered a specimen with over 27,000 km, just not reported yet since the data has not been sold. That would support your assumption.
 
I have added Cloomao EV-A b55-2 A 1 to EDSM.. Curiously enough despite the original report being made in 2016 there were no discovery tags on the system, so while the original discovery will always belong to Cmdr Martin Alfonso my name will be on the planet and star. I don't know whether you are still with us Cmdr and just lost the data to a stray rock or pirate attack but rest assured I didn't fly out to intentionally take your discovery, Fly Safe.
