Observation 152222: Armillaria solidipes Peck
When: 2013-10-03
No herbarium specimen

Notes: A clump of large, striking-looking mushrooms found growing on a decaying silver birch stump in early October. Liquified several days later after heavy rain.
No spore print available.
I am mainly guessing as to genus— based on somewhat similar species in Phillips guide— perhaps Cortinarius? Both the smaller ‘immature’ and large ‘mature’ mushrooms were growing very tightly packed together, so I assume it is one species, but perhaps not. Curious as to edibility too.
