The pileus is unopened. Convex pilei continue to expand as they mature until they become flat like we see on the other specimens in the additional photo provided.

i used “as if” out of certain knowledge. Can you say the same lol?

I did not propose a name because it is fun to see what others think of a weird looking anomalous species form. I collect 100’s, if not thousands of Armillaria each year, including A. gallica and eat them. My cabinet if full as I type.

you use “as if” yourself. It is not personal—it’s a vote. One photo of an old specimen with no notes makes it very hard to make a species call in my opinion. You didn’t have the genus until someone else proposed it so I can’t see how you can go to a definite on the species and an “as if” on other proposals with nothing but a photo.


Childish behavior….

the retaliatory anonymous “as if” A. mellea vote from Terri Clements and Donna Fulton.

These are A. mellea. We had a cold snap then warm.

The warm, cold then warm again has created the unusual shapes.
