Or should I call these aborted fruit bodies “Armillaria”? Growing without the entoloma mushroom.

the inner context becomes less compacted and pinkish stains develop. Sometimes a small hole develops on the top of a glob.
These globs are actually aborted Armillaria mushrooms. Usually, there are some Entoloma abortivum mushrooms near the globs. Sometimes there are also some normally formed Armillaria mushrooms nearby.
Look for these in hardwood areas where you usually find Armillaria. Areas with dead beech trees seem to be a favorite habitat.
Are there ever any indications of structure in them (cap & stem), or are they just lumps, like puffballs?
