Observation 149546: Armillaria (Fr.) Staude
When: 2013-10-22
No herbarium specimen

Notes: It doesn’t have a strong scent of any kind, kind of just smells like white mushrooms you get at the grocery store. Except it is a orange-brown colour. I found it growing by the root of a tree in a marshy area in a forest by a river in Guelph, Ontario, Canada.

Recognized by sight: Really hard to tell based on those pics, but if it has white spores that would point in this direction. What is the cap texture like – Tiny scales?

Seems like a good match for Armillaria

Sorry I am an amateur, so my pictures aren’t very good. This is my first time doing this. The underneath part of it, if that is what you mean by spores, is an off-white colour, like a sort of butterscotch cream colour. And the cap is one solid colour (brown/orange/yellow) with no scales.
