Observation 192984: Armillaria solidipes Peck
When: 2014-12-10
No herbarium specimen

Notes:
There were no caps that were completely mature, even the largest had some of the cortina attached. Growing from under log, out of wood debris. I’m not sure if there were roots, if so, not obvious. I did see some yellowing at the base where attached to wood.

Cap – 6 cm across. Some fibers on cap, also evidence of cortina on surface. Surface pale peachy-brown. The cap broke off easily when I tried to remove the mushroom. Flesh, thick at center, quickly becoming thin ( see photos), soft. Edges turned under, but cap is not mature.

Gills – pale, creamy peachy color. Edges serrated-wavy. Attached with small notch. Hard to tell how deep the notch is because the cap came off.

Stipe – thick – soft – flexible – fuzzy. The stipe felt soft and like it was mostly hollow. However, the center was not hollow but very soft flesh, softer than stipe surface. Fleshy center was white, the surface was pale peachy-brown much paler than cap.

Smell mild.

Staining – I observed none and no free liquid.

Spore Print – white
