Observation 175855: Desarmillaria tabescens (Scop.) R.A. Koch & Aime
When: 2014-09-01
Collection location: Japan [Click for map]
Who: shinto
No herbarium specimen

Notes: Looks like gymnopilus, but the gills were a bit different, fluted. Stipe appears to turn a bit green when handled. Inside stipe is, I believe, “stuffed”. waiting for a spore print, seems rusty orange from looking at the gills. Not exactly batting a thousand on my i.d.’s lately. Prepared for a correction.

Used references: “The exannulate Armillaria which is also frequent in Japan (Terashita and Chuman, 1987), is completely interfertile with the European isolates of A. tabescens and certainly belongs to this species (JJ Guillaumin, INRA, Clermont-Ferrand, France, and C Mohammed, University of Tasmania, Hobart, Tasmania, Australia, unpublished results).” http://www.cabi.org/isc/datasheet/7000
