Recognized by sight: Omphalotus is usually bright yellow. This looks more like Armillaria mellea which should have spores 6-10 microns x 5-6 microns. I can’t tell from the photos, but the cap should also have honey-brown fibrils on it, ergo the common name Honey Mushroom. Another cool test for Omphalotus is to leave it in a dark room at night. If you can see the mushroom with the lights off, it is probably Omphalotus illudens, which produces bioluminescence.
