Observation 166228: Armillaria (Fr.) Staude
When: 2014-05-29
Herbarium specimen reported

Notes: I have loaded similar images previously and without a finite species ID. When showing, these fungi are prevalent in one particular area, but do not seem to be hosting on any particular tree. I have found them at the base of dead stumps and also growing in single and group colonies. They are also found growing in groups at the base of Palms and between the palm extend root system above the ground. I have found them difficult to keep as they deteriorate rapidly. I do have a dried specimen. Also I have noticed a white powdery dusting in the close area to the fungi, although I believe they have white spores. Please note two locations were involved in the finds, but both were in identical forest and conditions. The more mature specimens had a habit of incurling the pileus on some fungi.

I agree with your suggested ID. I made an error in stating the spores were brown when they were “White”. That was my mistake. I was thinking of the colour of the fungi when I typed it up. My notes were correct. (white)
