Debbie, I believe that the species name (melle for “honey”) derives from the fact that this type of shroom occurs in lots of different colors, not unlike how the color of honey varies from yellow to amber to brown. Here in the estern USA we get lots of different colors, including a brilliant yellow type similar to Adnan’s.
is A. mellea as originally described a yellow capped species?
Yes, Patrick, still finding things but not Armillaria, but plenty of Cantharelle tubaeformis and some Trichs, that’s all. Looking forward to the spring time is all we can do to find more species, isn’t it?
Very nice pictures there. Glad you’re still finding things in Turkey.
Winter has closed in here in Missouri, found a few oysters last weekend
& it’s not long until spring!
