A lot has happened in mycology since I last looked

I never liked calling all these things the same species anyway. I don’t know what the Correct™ use of this “Mixed Collection” pseudonym is. I lean toward Dave W.‘s interpretation: since we can’t go to species here anyway, just call it all Armillaria and not a Mixed Collection.

Richard, maybe I’m missing something…?

Do you see something besides Armillaria here?

Difficult to tell…

if there’s more than one species here. But they all look like Armillaria to me.
